Every year, the Massachusetts Military Heroes organization plants a Garden of Flags - 37,000 of them - in front of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Boston Common to commemorate each of the Massachusetts service members who have given his or her lives to defend the United States and our freedom since the Revolutionary War.

Flags will be in place from Wednesday, May 20 through sundown on Monday, May 25. A ceremony to honor Massachusetts service members killed in Iraq and Afghanistan by reading their names will be held in front of the flag display on the Common on Thursday, May 21nd at 10:30am.
