It can be an emotional experience to stand in the midst of 2001 American flags, each one honoring a US military man or woman.
"There is an overwhelming sense of patriotism and reverence for those who have served and those who are serving," says Linda Logan of the Covina Rotary Club.
You can sponsor a flag in honor of a veteran from any conflict, including World War II or Vietnam. "We even had somebody sponsor a veteran from the Civil War," Logan said.
"It got started because we heard 20 percent of our returning veterans will be homeless," said Logan. Proceeds from the flag sponsorships benefit local military families, paying everything from grocery bills to rent and college tuition.
"The've gone months and months without any money from the government," Logan said.
Sponsorships are available at www.covinarotaryfieldofvalor.org. The flags will be on display Nov. 9-11 at the corner of Puente and Grand in Covina. Admission to the display is free.
