Flags of Valor Display - POW/MIA Recognition Day
Friday, September 18, 2020
The Manchester Flags of Valor collection will be displayed on POW/MIA Recognition Day, September 18th.
Manchester has a proud collection of Flags of Valor. Part of the 15th anniversary display entitled “America’s Heartland Remembers,” these 26 American flags were some of the more than 7000 flying in remembrance on Art Hill in 2016, each flag an individualized tribute to a military hero who lost their life in the “War on Terror.” Also part of this important collection, an American flag that flew in the center circle of the 2016 Art Hill installation in honor of those heroes that lost their lives to PTSD, a recognition that the casualties of war occur on and off the battlefield. The Flags of Valor are displayed at the Veterans Memorial today.
