last year, in honor of veterans day, the student veterans alliance at the university where i work displayed 6,750 american flags on campus. each flag represented a fallen service member. this year, the student veterans alliance did their "flags for the fallen campaign" again, displaying 6,800 american flags on campus. it's so moving to see the thousands of flags arranged in perfectly straight lines, blowing gently in the breeze. the project is such a lovely tribute to the veterans who served our country.
