Honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice this Memorial Day Weekend at the Third Annual Flags for the Fallen at the Mighty Eighth. This tribute, located in the museum’s Memorial Gardens, 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. The flag display in the garden will be open to the public from Friday through Monday and will cover the museum’s entire memorial garden and chapel grounds.
