Norfolk Field Of Flags To Be On Display
NORFOLK - Field of Flags, a tribute to Nebraska's fallen heroes since the 9-11 attacks, will be on display from tomorrow through next Wednesday at 804 N. Birch Street in Norfolk. The display, created by Thomas Landkamer, 18, features individual U.S. flags bearing the name and rank of each service person who has given the ultimate sacrifice. Two other special flags will also be flying in remembrance of 9/11. They are the Flag of Honor, with names of all victims killed on 9/11; and Flag of Heroes, with names of all military, police and fire personnel killed on that day. Those viewing the display are invited to stop and walk through the rows of flags as they pause to remember the freedom that military personnel fight to defend for the country each day.
