SAINT AUGUSTINE – Volunteers from the Pilot Club, 4-H and St. Joseph Academy, along with friends of all three groups turned out May 27 to place flags in front of the Lightner Building this Memorial Day.

The flags, which are marked with names of those who have served in the Armed Forces, represent both living and deceased individuals who have fought for freedom for this country.
