Michelle said that she walked away from Saturday’s ceremony with more knowledge about America's history.

"I didn't know that there was so many flags," she said.

Pvt. Makayla Martin, 11, received a hands-on lesson in flag-handling decorum when she participated in a ceremony the prior day at a Milton cemetery.

"We got to change the flags out and raise them for a ceremony," Makayla said. "It was new to me, so it was a great experience and now I know how to put up a flag."
