Flags honor fallen Veterans in the Valley

FRESNO, Calif.

More than 250 american flags were placed near headstones at Fresno's Armenian Cemetery Saturday. The only one of its kind in the entire U.S.

The Ararat Cemetery has been in Fresno for 125 years and many Veterans of Armenian descent have been laid to rest there.

"The friends and families of the Veterans interred here, feel good about it. They like to see it. They know their loved ones are honored," Frank Balekian said.

Members of a youth group from Holy Trinity Armenian Church helped put out flags at the cemetery Satuarday.

They'll be on display through Memorial Day.
