Memorial Day Flags2004

Winner, SD Cemetery

May 31, 2004

Every year on Memorial Day, Veteran's organizations in Winner, SD line a cemetery "avenue" with flags. This year the wind blew for 25 to 35mph all day and the flags were almost horizontal, but were continuously whipped in the wind. The day was mostly sunshine but the clouds were not the big fluffy cummulous, but more like storm clouds.

Rural states are currently providing a disproportinate share of the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and by the number of flags in the Cementery have also done so in the past.
