Firefighters from the Boise Fire Department anchor the bottom of an American flag as it is raised by the boom on a ladder track during a ceremony at the Idaho fallen Firefighters Memorial on Wednesday in Boise. Known as The Patriot Flag, this 30' x 55' banner is touring the country being displayed in all 50 states in 50 weeks before flying over Shanksville, Penn., the Pentagon and New York City on Sept. 11, 2011—the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
