Veteran Flowers and Flags
In 2015, Preston Sharp was honoring his U.S. Navy Veteran grandfather’s gravesite with flowers and an American flag. When he looked at other sites around he noticed other Veteran’s graves could use some honoring of their own. In that moment, inspiration was born. Today, Sharp is 12 years old and has organized the placement of flags and red carnations at over 40,000 gravesites and plans to continue honoring Veterans across all 50 states. Sharp received great praise from President Donald Trump during the 2018 State of the Union Address and was given prime seating next to the First Lady of the United States.
