Larry Gilbert Sr., a Vietnam Veteran from Lewiston, places flags on the left side of veterans graves at Mt. Hope Cemetery Wednesday afternoon. About two dozen volunteers placed over 1,000 flags in the Lewiston cemetery. After a mass email to groups and organizations from Lewiston’s city clerk to help honor veterans, board members of the Liberty Festival organized and promoted it. Others have joined in to do the same at other local cemeteries. The city paid for the flags.
