Happy Veteran’s Day from RMIS

In observance of Veteran’s Day, members of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadets spent their Saturday in a “Flags Up” ceremony at the Ivy Lawn Memorial Park in Ventura, California.  The cadets and other volunteers placed almost 3,000 U.S. flags on the grave markers of veterans, as well as placing large flags around the perimeter of the park.  Cooper Lunenfeld (thirteen year old son of RMIS Executive Vice President Pete Lunenfeld) was one of the cadets that spent his day honoring our veterans, and our nation’s flag.
