Memorial Day: 2012

Over 6500 American flags waved in front of the Long Center for the Performing Arts this weekend, honoring those who have died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This fundraiser was sponsored by Operation Honor Our Heroes, a non-profit established to assisting wounded veterans and their families. Flags could be “sponsored” for $2.00 each. 

Volunteers started tapping the flags into the ground on Sunday afternoon and worked throughout the evening.

This morning around 9 AM I walked back over to the Long Center to watch the Capital of Texas Triathalon and saw that most of flags were set up. They finished just a short time later.
This patriotic display remained in front of the Long Center all afternoon and could be easily seen from the downtown highrises. By sunset this evening, the flags had all been removed.
