Flags fly for Memorial Day in Boise, shown here at historic Morris Hill Cemetery.
The cemetery was busy today with families decorating their loved ones’ graves with flowers and small American flags.
In honor of Memorial Day, the Spokesman-Review has published its “Faces of the Fallen” feature, which you can see here; it shows the faces of the men and women from our region who are part of the 1,084 military personnel who have died in Afghanistan since the fall of 2001 and 4,400 who have died in the Iraq war since March 2003. Links by the pictures take you to the stories behind each one.
