Patriotic Leelanau County residents have been busy in the past week honoring veterans who are buried in local cemeteries.

Among those recognizing veterans was Joshua Somero, a Northport sixth grader pictured to the right. Somero was one of more than 10 members of Scout Troop 131 who placed flags on service member graves in Bingham Township.

Among those placing flags on Sunday was Irwin Beck of Empire Township.

“It needs to be done,” said Beck, a member of American Legion Post 199 in Maple City.
