UTICA - Flags for our nation's local military heroes are now posted along the Memorial Parkway ahead of Veterans Day.

Through November 11th you can head to the Parkway in the area near the Rec Center. As you can see from the attached video, it's a sight to behold.

Approximately 1,000 eight-feet-tall flags will be posted in honor of local veterans, active military, first responders and their families.

“We’re posting the flags for our “Flags for Heroes” event. This is our fourth year doing this, and we’re in the process this year of raising money for Sitrin’s military rehabilitation program,” said Judy Hauck, the executive director of the Good News Center.

These flags are tagged "in memory of" or "in honor of" a service member for $35. Hauck says $15,000 was raised in 2017.

Notre Dame’s ROTC club also pitched in to help post the flags.

The closing ceremony will take place at 3:30 pm on Veterans Day – Sunday, November 11th.
