The annual Memorial Day ceremony was held this weekend at Boston Common and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. As part of the ceremony, family members and others read the 270 names of the fallen men and women who served in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars in front of the Garden of Flags.
The majestic garden of over 37,000 flags on Boston Common for Memorial Day weekend is planted by 700+ volunteers and the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund. Each flag represents a Massachusetts service member who gave his or her life defending our country since the Revolutionary War.
