Field of Flags

WARREN CONNECTICUT – A quote from the Warren Congregational Church website:

Field of Flags Service
at the Warren Congregational Church

All are invited to this special service to honor those who lost their lives
in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, their families and friends and all our
service men and women past, present and future!!!

There will be a pot luck dinner after the service

The Field of Flags is a silent, patriotic and poignant reminder of the cost of war. Each flag represents not simply one casualty, but the family members and friends who have been touched by that life now gone. They represent our respect for those who have served and are currently serving in the military and our hope for peace in the future, for a time when no one is called upon by our country to give the greatest sacrifice

  1. I drove by the church yesterday quickly and wondered what those flags were. Thanks for researching. What great visuals. Never thought about stopping to take a picture!
