Our community continues to honor and bring to light our fallen heroes that are sent into battle, remembering that each flag represents a face, a family, and friends who will always have a hole in their heart.
The Department of Defense casualty list states that 28 more members of our military that have given the ultimate sacrifice for us since May 31. The death total now stands at 6,497 in Afghanistan and Iraq as of June 22.
The Field of Flags is now leaving the United Methodist Church, Bristol, Conn. May their presence in future communities help bring to light the sacrifices that are being made for us in Afghanistan and Iraq.
For the Field of Flags,
