(Rossford, OH) There's a patriotic way to teach your kids about the sacrifices made by war veterans this weekend.
Ohio Flags of Honor will bring its traveling memorial to Rossford this weekend for public display. The memorial honors men and women who gave their lives in more recent conflicts-- in Afghanistan, Iraq, and globally in the War on Terrorism.
A ceremony starts at noon Saturday, where flags will be posted in honor of every Ohio soldier who gave the ultimate sacrifice in those military missions half-a-world away. A closing ceremony will take place Sunday at 2 p.m. The display will be housed at the IBEW Local 8 Hall on Lime City Road.
The mother of Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Belkofer, who died in 2010 during Operation Enduring Freedom, was instrumental in bringing the display to Rossford.
