KALISPELL – Main Street is flanked on both sides with flags thanks to veterans in Kalispell who have gave their time to place the 62 flags early on Tuesday.

Members of the Kalispell/Glacier VFW Post 2252 hung the flags which stretch from the courthouse to Depot Park at 6 a.m. to mark the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The Post pays for the flags and their upkeep and they do it because a part of the mission of the VFW is to keep patriotism alive in the community. It’s one of the ways they make sure that patriotism is remembered on specific holidays.

The flags are also placed on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Patriot’s Day and Veteran’s Day. They will be removed on Wednesday.
