FOXBORO (CBS) – A memorial for Fallen Heroes is now on display at Gillette Stadium. The American flag stands 6 feet tall and is made up of 7,000 dog tags from soldiers who have lost their lives since the 9/11 attacks.
Each dog tag shows the name, rank and date of each service member’s death.
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft joined local military families and veterans at a special ceremony on Friday to pay tribute to the fallen heroes.
“This is supposedly the home of the New England Patriots,” Kraft said. “Today it’s really home of the true Patriots.”
The memorial will be on display through Sunday outside the Patriots Pro Shop.
