(KWWL) -

Waterloo will be honoring a 94-year old World War II veteran during the Memorial day parade.

Marcia Courbat has made it her mission to place a flag at the grave of each fallen war hero in Waterloo.

And at 94, she still manages it all.

She say's she's looking for someone to carry the tradition on for her. 

"I don't think they realize how important it is," Courbat said.  "And not only that, there's a lot of work." 

She says the flag tradition has to continue. 

Courbat served stateside during the war in hospitals. 

The parade will be on Monday, May 30th at 10 a.m. It will begin on the corner of Commercial and 5th streets.

It will be followed by a program at Memorial Hall.
