For the second year in a row, the Sons of Legion Post 440 in Newton, MA have done an awesome job displaying 3'X5' Old Glory's.
Over the Veteran's and Memorial Day period's, they hung ten flags each over the Mass. Turnpike overpasses from Exit 17 in Newton to I-95 (RT 128) and on RT 128 thru Newton and Needham.
Twenty-three overpasses got 10 flags each (five facing in both directions) for a total of 230. They also placed a "Thank You Veterans" sign on each in both directions.
To pay for these, they solicited donations at $20 (or more) each in honor or memory of a Veteran.
