A field of Old Glory honors veterans
Henry Farnham, president of the Barnstable, Mass., Town Council, took this picture at the entrance to the Barnstable Town Green on Veterans Day. The flags, placed by Veterans for Peace, represent soldiers that have been killed in Iraq (almost 3,000). Barnstable’s Veterans Day festivities included a half-mile parade featuring military association participants, boy scouts, campfire girls and boys, Barnstable High School and Middle School bands, the police and fire color guards, and state and town officials. After the parade, dignitaries delivered speeches, wreaths were placed on war memorials, and the VFW hosted a meal for the public.
