Exchange Clubs of Washington County are hosting a display of 3,412 American flags at Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg.
The display is part of a national program, with more than 30 Healing Fields registered in the United States. The flags honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and those who died in Shanksville, Pa.
For information, go to healingfield.org on the Web.
The opening program will begin at 4 p.m. today. The name of each person will be called, and a flag posted in tribute on the field.
The flags may be sponsored or purchased as keepsakes for $30 each. Each 3-by-5-foot flag and 8-foot pole comes with a certificate of authenticity.
