The local American Legion in the town I grew up near, ( population 200 ) always puts on an outstanding Memorial Day service at the local cemetery. My parents were active members of that Legion and Auxiliary, so it is always so special to attend. They have an avenue of flags, which were the ones that were presented to the fallen hero’s and past members of that Legion Post who have served and passed on. Today is always a great day to reflect on how lucky we are and thank the people who were courageous enough to fight for our freedom. God Bless America.

An Avenue of Flags is cool anywhere you see it. I always love driving to New Ulm on the 4th of July and seeing the St Peter Veterans Park lined with flags

My favorite however was see them around the entire parade field at Offutt AFB near Omaha. They did it for holidays and major events like a change of command. Seeing a nearly 1 mile rectangular perimeter of flags was something I’ll never forget.
