Friday, November 11, 2022

The Global War on Terror (GWOT) Memorial Flag honors over 7,000 GWOT fallen heroes and gold star families. This 28 foot wide by 6 foot tall American flag symbolizes the shape of the flag when draped on a fallen service member's casket. It is formed of over 7,000 dog tags of all those who have fallen in the War on Terror. There are 50 gold stars honoring all gold star families nationwide. Displayed in front of the flag is a battlefield cross sculpted from mahogany wood by a veteran artist Alicia Dietz.
