In the words of John F Kennedy, "We express our gratitude to our Veteran's. We must never forget the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."

To honor those men and women who have fought or are fighting for our freedom, flags line the Memorial Parkway in Utica. Take a unique look at the Flags for Heroes from a drone flying over the field.

All the money raised from flag sales will be given to soldiers and their families.

The Flags for Heroes and Families will stand on the Parkway until November 12th.
