Once again this Memorial Day Weekend my Alma Mater "Southern Regional" will be paying tribute to our fallen heroes with their "Field of Flags" ..... This week members of the Southern Regional Air Force ROTC have been planting the flags (12x18 inch) at the school located along Route 9 in Manahawkin. One flag for every fallen military member who has died in Iraq and Afghanistan. The total is now 6,915 flags.

 

According to the Sandpiper, there will be a Memorial Service at the "Field of Flags" on Friday, May 26th beginning at 10:30 am. If there should be inclement weather the ceremony will be held at the school's auditorium.

If you get a chance this weekend drive by Southern and see the sea of red white and blue and remember our fallen heroes!
