Flags raised in Cape Girardeau County for Flag Day

CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - The Avenue of Flags was raised in Cape County Park North on Thursday, June 14 for Flag Day. They were put up by the Eagles Club of Cape Girardeau.

Each flag is representative of a veteran who's family brought the flag forward to be put up. Some date back to the Civil War.

Terri Noland has been helping put up flags since her husband, Carroll Jake Noland passed away from illnesses associated with Agent Orange three years ago. She hopes people see these flags and remember what they represent.

"It's our freedom. If these guys hadn't did what they did, we wouldn't be free to do this today," she said.

The flags will be up from Thursday morning to that evening.
