Flags of Valor

September 6, 2016 TO September 11, 2016 | Art Hill in Forest Park

On 9-11-2016, America’s Heartland Remembers will pay tribute to the fallen by filling Art Hill — the iconic St. Louis destination in Forest Park — with nearly 7,000 American flags. Each flag will not only represent one U.S casualty but will also symbolize respect for those who have served and are currently serving our country. Visitors will be able to walk through the massive display and interact with each flag. Each and every flag will bear the name and photo of a US Service Member who bravely served their country, but never came home to their loved ones. The flags will be placed in chronological order and will allow loved ones and visitors to easily find and honor each hero.
