American Flags Planted at Medical Center Represent Veteran Suicides

It was cold and rainy the evening of Sunday, June 24, but veterans and their families and friends came out to plant over 600 flags in front of Sanford Medical Center and promote a good cause.

Members of the Marine Corps League Detachment in Fargo planted 660 flags on the Sanford Medical Center lawn to raise awareness of veteran suicides—660 flags to represent 660 veteran suicides that occur every month, said Brad Aune, commandant of the Red River Raiders Detachment #1453.
