TUCSON, Ariz. - Memorial Day is a day to remember and honor those who gave their lives serving in the military.

One woman goes to East Lawn Palms Cemetery to plant or fix flags every Memorial Day to do just that.

Every Memorial Day Angeline Hamilton goes to the cemetery to plant a flag and remember her father.

Angeline Hamilton says "we really wouldn't have the the country that we have if we didn't have people who were willing to give up themselves that."

For Hamilton, Memorial Day is about paying tribute to her father, a World War II veteran, and the rest who served.

Flag planting happens at several cemeteries across Tucson throughout the Memorial Day weekend.

The East Lawn Palms cemetery will be hosting a service Monday at 9:00 a.m.
