The organizers are Flags4Vets: The National Flags for Veterans' Graves Program

An excerpt from the Flags4Vets website:

A VETERAN IS: Someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America for an amount of up to and including their life if needed.  That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. One-million-five-hundred-thousand of those checks were cashed for full-value in the last 235 years and the least we can do is put a flag on each of their graves.
 
Since we were incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) in 2007, we have placed thousands of flags on Veterans graves in 28 states.  We need the help of individuals and groups to expand into your community; please help us place flags on U.S. Veterans' Graves by contacting us today.

Many people think that some Government Agency places flags on Veterans' graves for Veterans Day and Memorial Day, which simply isn't the case in most cemeteries; PLEASE HELP.
