USA flags were placed at 2,300 gravesites in 65 cemeteries throughout Austin to recognize our WWI veterans as part of the National WWI Centennial Project for Veterans Day in November 2018. The WWI Centennial celebration continues until June 2019, 100 years after the Versailles Treaty formally ended the war.
