for the past several 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 over 7,000 american flags on the campus lawn. each flag represents a fallen service member.
the flags are on display all week and i drive past them every morning on my way into work. 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.
