Flags

We went to Detroit Lakes yesterday to see the Avenue of the Flags at Oak Grove Cemetery.  It is becoming a tradition for us.  Usually we make a day of it and go to the Flea Market and then come back through the Wildlife Refuge.  Since we have company we decided not to drag them away for the entire day.

The flags are impressive and seem to go on forever, much like our Veteran’s commitment to protect our county and fight for our freedom.

I hope that the grand boys were sufficiently impressed with the amount of flags they saw.  Perhaps someday they will remember the day they saw all the flags:)

  5. A wonderful display.

    The VFW in my community displays flags along Main Street on all flag holidays. They are a good reminder of the sacrifices made to keep them flying.

  16. A gives a new meaning to the phrase "flag day" (Do you have Flag days over there - days when charities sell little paper flags on pins for donations?)
