CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Community volunteers are honoring fallen service members as they prepare Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland for a Memorial Day observance.

According to a news release, the volunteers have worked days in advance to place American flags on the graves of veterans buried there, more than 9,000.

Brother and sister Addyson and Landon made sure to wake up early so they can pay it forward.

“It’s nice to do this because you can thank the people that were in the war instead of sitting at home and playing video games all day,” said Landon Feinstein.

The event begins at 10:30 a.m. Monday at Lake View Cemetery, located at 12316 Euclid Avenue.

Remarks will be given by retired United States Marine Corps Colonel Mark “Puck” Mykleby, according to the release.

There will also be a flag raising, wreath placing and patriotic performance.
