The Worcester County Veterans Memorial joined with the Rotary Club of Ocean City/Berlin to organize the 1st Annual Flags for Heroes event. The field of over 200 American flags was on display in Veterans Memorial Park, along Route 589, in Ocean Pines from Armed Forces Day through Memorial Day.
The flags were sponsored by individuals or businesses to honor the people who have helped, supported or inspired them. Each flag was identified by a medallion with the names of the Hero and the sponsor. The medallions could be kept as mementos for the sponsors or Heroes.
