Description: Boston Memorial Day 33000 Flags Each year on Memorial Day weekend, the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund and its 200 volunteers plant 33,000 THIRTY THREE THOUSAND American flags by the Soldiers and Sailors Monument that on Boston Common. Each flag represents a soldier who has died in service since the American Civil War. The blanket of flags is awe-inspiring and poignant I sincerely encourage everyone to take a few moments each Memorial Day weekend to see this incredible remembrance of the sacrifice so many of our brave men and women have made to secure our freedom. In 2012, the “Massachusetts Military Heroes” ceremony was attended by a crowd of about 300 people, including Governor Deval Patrick, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, and about 20 families of service members killed in action. Mayor Menino said, “There are people going down to the Cape or going to the mountains they forget the sacrifices made by so many men and women so we could have the freedom in America today.
