Called "Little Arlington," Baltimore National Cemetery is where Boy Scouts were to arrive this evening to begin the Memorial Day custom of placing small flags on all the graves of the military veterans and their spouses interred here.

Retired Sgt. Maj. Lance Sweigart's dignified voice seemed to silence even the whistling cicadas as it carried through the acres of headstones and wreaths. As the 30-year Army veteran sang the national anthem at yesterday's Memorial Day observance at the Baltimore National Cemetery, some veterans raised their hands in salute. Others recited the words with their hands over their hearts. Even the children in the audience stood still. It was one of several annual rituals that seemed to take on renewed meaning in light of both the continued fighting in Iraq and this weekend's dedication of the National World War II Memorial in Washington.
