“As you can see, with the flag, honor and remember, and that's exactly what it’s doing. So we're just remembering those who've been lost,” said Mitchell Zechmann, the fundraising coordinator.
They were flags representing the lives of two soldiers who passed away while serving their country and those flags were presented to family members of those soldiers on Sunday.
The Minnesota Chapter of Honor and Remember presented ceremonial flags to honor two soldiers.
The soldiers passed away many decades ago but even with the passage of time, their service has not been forgotten.
The first flag presented on Saturday honored Jerry Caldwell, a young soldier who spent his 18th birthday on board a ship to Korea.
He lost his life when he was separated from his unit in December of 1950.
His remains have never been returned home.
“We give out tons of flags because many people thought that they were forgotten. That those loved ones were forgotten so this is huge for that family. It’s a remembrance for what they've done for their family and also this country,” said Zechmann.
The second flag was presented to honor Mike Mc Keever.
He was one month into his second tour in Vietnam when he was killed back in 1968.
Both soldiers who were honored were marines.
