Photos: Volunteers remove Flags of Valor from Art Hill as display comes to a close

Hundreds of volunteers showed up to help take down over 7,500 flags that were part of the Flags of Valor display honoring members of the military and first responders who died in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and resulting wars. Photos of the civilians killed on 9/11 were also posted near the Art Hill lagoon. The 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks marked the third time that Art Hill in Forest Park hosted the display. Rick Randall, the president of America's Heartland Remembers that organizes and puts on Flags of Valor event, says the organization hopes to do the display again in five years.
