Blank Check Society (BCS) of America, Leon County Chapter, placed American flags on the graves of 96 veterans laid to rest in the Broom Sage and Beth Page cemeteries in Wacissa on Sunday, August 26.
BCS members are veterans or family members of veterans, living or deceased, who come together in brotherhood to honor veterans. The members possess a deep appreciation for our veterans and love for our country.
Members travel, usually by motorcycle, to area cemeteries placing flags on the grace sites of veterans and perform clean up when needed. The membership serves Jefferson, Leon and Wakulla County cemeteries.
Since its inception in 2017, BCS Leon County has placed 1,800+ flags in the 27 cemeteries Leon County and the six cemeteries in Jefferson including Roseland, Oakfield and the Old City Cemetery in Monticello.
In October the group will travel together to the Boland Cemetery and Waukeenah Methodist Church Cemetery.
