ESTELL MANOR - Veterans who are buried at one local cemetery were being honored Monday with a lot of red, white and blue.
Three area Boy Scout troops spent much of the afternoon getting the Atlantic County Veterans Cemetery in Estell Manor ready for Veterans Day.
Like they do on several other national holidays, the scouts placed American flags on each of the more than 3,000 graves at the cemetery.
"... Veterans Day its not only to help give out to those who died, its also to remember the people who served and also the ones who are still alive," said Kolby Rundio with Boy Scout Troop 634.
November 11 was originally known as Armistice Day in recognition of the end of world war one. The national holiday became known as Veterans Day in 1954.
