The Field of Flags memorial came to New Martinsville on Friday, Aug. 12, 2011. At that time, we honored 6,198 fallen heroes. Tragically, as of Aug. 10, 2012, we now mourn the loss of 6,557 members of our military that have given the ultimate sacrifice for us.
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 Field of Flags is now at Warren Congregational Church in Warren, Conn. May their presence here and in future communities help bring to light the sacrifices that are being made for us in Afghanistan and Iraq.
