Fallen in Combat Installation Blue Hill, Maine

While vacationing in Maine on the way up we came across this outdoor anti-war installation in Blue Hill, Maine. It's been up since the Iraq war started in 2003.

Each time the grass is cut on the lawn each flag is taken up by volunteers and then replaced one by one.

There is a white flag for every US soldier killed in action in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The blue flags are the Maine state flags which signify the fallen service men and women from Maine.

It was like a small cemetery.

It is set up one someone's front lawn right across the road from the American Legion Duffy-Westcott Post 85.
