View attachment 2004 I recently visited this newly dedicated Veterans Grove Memorial in Old Lycoming Township, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania on Memorial Day 2017. A simple memorial consisting of this field of small American flags on a grassy slope, and at the top, the image of a kneeling soldier flanked by the the insignia of the five military service organizations. On the one hand I was impressed with the solemn simplicity of this tribute. On the other hand I was disappointed that apparently no one involved was aware that the military service insignia are displayed out of order. According to the Department of Defense Directive 1005.8 the correct order (from left to right) should be US Army, US Marine Corps, US Navy, US Air Force, and US Coast Guard. I left a note recommending the appropriate change, but it was either ignored or removed because the arrangement remains as it was on Memorial Day.
