Grants Pass, Ore., — A ceremony unlike any other, an American flag standing 140 feet tall, honoring those who have served.
“We’re looking for those things that bind us together, and our flag certainly does, and so today this has just drawn a number of people from everywhere to celebrate the country, celebrate our Veterans, the people who gave us the freedom.” said State Representative, Carl Wilson.
Veterans and their family and friends from all over the Rogue Valley came out to support their loved ones.
“It was far more than I expected you know, it was great, you see people you haven’t seen in 10, 12, 15 years. Wow what a blessing.” said U.S. Marine Veteran, Jim Hale.
And watch the largest American flag in Josephine County be unveiled.
As World War II planes flew over head, Veterans in attendance were left speechless.
“There’s not words for me to express what this means to me, it’s just such a gigantic day in my life.” said Hale.
Bringing together hundreds of people – all in support of the same thing, forever honoring and never forgetting, those who sacrificed their freedom, for ours.
“It means a lot, I mean we used to never see a gathering like this, for this reason and it’s very gratifying to know.”
