Veteran reflects on honoring fellow service members

The retired lieutenant colonel helped place flags at the Arizona Veterans' Memorial Cemetery at Marana ahead of Veterans Day.

Amid a tumultuous election, this week the nation took time to honor veterans. The pandemic led to canceled parades and scaled-down events for Veterans Day, but it did not hamper tradition at the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery at Marana. There we met retired Lt. Col. Ken Robinson as he and others planted flags on each grave.

Robinson is a member of the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery Foundation, which handles fundraising for beautification projects at the cemetery. You can learn more about their efforts and how to donate here.
