September 11, 2009: Flags over the overpasses on major highways into Washington, DC.

Posted by Kathleen Smith

Shortly after September 11, 2001, American flags starting showing up on overpasses on major highways leading into Washington DC especially Highway 66 in Virginia. Ever since 2001, each September around the first of the month, the flags start returning and stay up for the whole month. We honor and recognize these citizens who show their patriotic spirit for all to see. We also noticed that a few overpasses were missing some flags, so we put some up ourselves.
We will never forget.
