A crew headed up by VFW Post 1716 of Watsonville took on the task of flying hundreds of coffin flags between the Veterans of Foreign Wars Building on Freedom Boulevard to Martinelli Street. Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the U.S. for mourning its military personnel who died during the service in armed forces.
