Flag memorial to be displayed
The University of South Dakota Veterans Club and the Yankton Riverboat Days Board of Directors will be hosting the USD Veterans Club Fallen Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan Flag Memorial.

The display consists of a flag for every member of the military who has been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since Sept. 11, 2001. Currently there are over 4,000 fallen veterans who will be represented by individual flags.

The memorial will be open for viewing the afternoon of Friday Aug. 17 through Sunday evening, Aug. 19 on the west end of Riverside Park during the Yankton River Boat Days celebration.

As people visit the park during Riverboat Days they are invited to stop and reflect upon the sacrifices of our veterans. A full schedule of events for Riverboat Days can be found at www.riverboatdays.com.
