Field of Flags on tap in Roxbury
Roxbury Congregational Church will dedicate The Field of Flags April 25 at noon.
The dedication will be held at the 24 Church St. church.
The display, which will be on the church property through May 18, features an American flag for each American casualty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Field of Flags was first dedicated Oct. 23, 2005, at the Somers Congregational Church.
Members of the church's memorial garden committee placed 2,231 American Flags in the ground, one for each American casualty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
A list of names, rank and home state of the hero represented by each flag will be displayed.
