Took these pictures this morning.  The flags went on for over 10 miles. 

Very moving experience just to see all the flags and know what it was all about.

Very moving. Our military doesn't get nearly enough recognition for the sacrifices they make for our country.

Thanks Kris.  We have had a couple of those procession in SW Iowa in the last few years.  Flags as far as one could see - till they run out of flags.  Then an anonymous person donated $1K to buy more flags.  Very moving experience.  I was in the Air Force in food service when the Cuban Crisis hit.  First time were were ever issued ammo for our weapons to guard the mess hall.  Makes chills run down you spine, believe me.
