On May 27, Gershow Recycling sponsored and took part in the 23rd Annual Flag Placement Ceremony at Calverton National Cemetery. The event recognized local Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, their parents and other volunteers who placed American flags in front of more than 210,000 grave sites.
Jonathan Abrams and Ray Colon, Managers, Gershow Recycling, thanked those who volunteered their time recognizing those who made the ultimate sacrifice. The ceremony had a special meaning for Mr. Colon, whose father, Ramon Colon, Jr., a World War II veteran, was interred at Calverton in 1993.
