Girl Scouts place flags on graves in Vail Memorial Cemetery

PARSIPPANY — Ever wonder how the flags get into the cemetery just before Memorial Day? The Girl Scouts were out placing flags on graves in Vail Memorial Cemetery.

The girls even took a picture of the map of the graves in Vail Memorial Cemetery and now can find their graves of the fallen buried there on their phone.

The Vail Memorial Cemetery is located at the corner of Route 46 and Vail Road.

The Vail Memorial Cemetery at Parsippany Presbyterian Church is a historic cemetery dating nearly 300 years. Including graves of veterans from nearly every major war the United States has been a part of, Vail Cemetery has a long history of celebrating our heroes. Predating the American Revolution, the site is a favorite of genealogists and historians.

The Cemetery is currently still in active use.
