Please pay your respects to the men, women and children who lost their lives on that fateful day. As you wander through the field stop to read the biography tags attached to each flag. Flags for 1st responders are marked with yellow ribbons. Members of the flight crews are marked with blue ribbons. Soldiers & veterans have combat boots at the base of their pole. Children are honored with teddy bears at the base of their poles. Every flag represents a life taken too early, but one that will never be forgotten.
