veterans day


for the past few years, the student veterans alliance at the university where i work has displayed thousands of american flags on campus in honor of veterans day.  this year they did their "flags for the fallen campaign" again, displaying 6,800 american flags on campus.  each flag represents a fallen service member.  it's really something 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.

love, laurie

That is beautiful in person. I was glad our bus drove right by it and we made the kids look out the windows. Stunning site.

The flags are beautiful and I am glad the students do this each year. I just wish that all of the people represented by the flags could still be alive today.
