• Creston couple places a bouquet of red, white and blue flowers on the graves of veterans who don’t have any at all.
John and Lynne Schlaht of Creston stand side-by-side at Graceland Cemetery nearly one decade ago. It is morning. The grass below their feet is freshly cut, a little wet, and in the stillness of the cemetery the most recognizeable sounds are American flags flapping in the wind.
It’s Memorial Day.
Like past years, the Schlahts are attending the Memorial Day program at Graceland Cemetery. A small group of people gather with them. The group says the Pledge of Allegiance together and listens to the keynote speaker.
