The Church of the Epiphany, of Southbury, Connecticut is now the host for the traveling “Field of Flags” memorial.
A beautiful tribute started in October 23, 2005 by the Somers, Connecticut Congergational Church as a tribute of one flag for every American casualty in Iraq and Afganistan. In 2005 the field started with 2,231 American Flags.
Unfortunately the field has grown much bigger. It has now reached 6,126 flags as of July 15, 2011.
It’s next Connecticut stop will be in East Haven, Connecticut at the Old Stone Church on Friday, September 9, 2011.
