American flags mark veterans' graves across the country on this Veterans Day. There are more than 50,000 on the graves at the Massachusetts National Cemetery on Cape Cod.

Hundreds of volunteers came to place them on Saturday. It's a project called Operation Flags For Vets, which was started by Paul Monti, after his son Jared was killed in Afghanistan in 2006 and was buried there.

Here & Now's Alex Ashlock has been following this story for several years and went to the cemetery again on Saturday. He brought back this report.
