Flags for the Fallen
26,000 Flags | One Mission
Save the date and join us from May 26 through Memorial Day 2023 for the return of Flags for the Fallen: 26,000 Flags | One Mission.
This tribute, located in the museum’s Memorial Garden, honors the 26,000 Eighth Air Force airmen who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War II. 26,000 48-star American flags, the flag under which these men served, and many are buried, will fill the garden and give visitors a chance to walk through and remember those heroes who didn’t return home.
