July 1, 2019

(Connecting Vets) A 28-foot wide American flag that is comprised entirely of the dog tags of fallen service members is traveling the country to "raise awareness of the sacrifice paid by our nation's heroes."

According to Veterans & Athletes United, the group behind the Fallen Heroes Memorial, it symbolizes the shape of the U.S. flag when draped over a fallen service member's casket.
