July 4th, 2020, Independence Day in The United States of America. Blairsville Cemetery in Blairsville Pennsylvania has several thousand United States Military Veterans interred. About twenty five years ago, a local US Army Veteran got the idea to ask relatives of deceased US Military servicemen and women to donate the five by eight foot flags presented to the family at the end of each funeral service. The display has grown and grown. Approximately four hundred of the collection, now well over one-thousand flags, is flown on a few patriotic holidays each year. Volunteers do all the work. At the base of each flagpole is a small marker with the name of a serviceman represented by that flag.

That definitely makes good use of the extra wide angle lens.
