Fourth of July flag posting

The Lutz-Land O’Lakes American Legion Post 108 places small American flags on the grave of each identifiable veteran at the Lutz cemetery three times a year. We do this on each Independence Day, Veterans Day and Memorial Day and have been doing these postings for many years.

We posted approximately 165 flags during the last posting in the Lutz cemetery on July 3. The flags remain for about three days and are recovered by the post for use on the next occasion. This American Legion post was originally chartered in 1937 as the Lutz American Legion Post 108 and this is one of many patriotic community efforts performed by American Legion Post 108.

American Legion Lutz-Land O’Lakes Post 108 Legionnaires who posted the American flags on the graves of every veteran in the Lutz Cemetery on July 3 are L-R: Adjutant Ray Mason, Past Commander Jim Evans, Past Commander Richard Fernandez and Commander Bill Garrison.


  1. Thank you for the work you are doing. Seven years ago, my family "adopted" a local cemetery and we bring our children (all 5) out to "post or plant flags" (as my children refer to it). We always place the flag in the center of the marker. Wives often sacrifice too! If it is a husband wife marker, it gets centered between the two. We also post the flag on the west side. Are there any official rules about this. Blessings for your service
