ADA COUNTY -- Thousands of American Flags wave in the breeze at the Idaho Veteran's Cemetery thanks to a local group of young Marines.

Putting up the flags on Memorial Day is a tradition that dates back more than a decade. The Treasure Valley Young Marine Unit will continue their work at the cemetery by providing community service Sunday and Monday.

One young Marine says he doesn't help out for the recognition. He's just there to honor the troops. I don't care about appreciation as much as I do about honoring the troops. I don't care about getting noticed. I just like helping out.
