I've lived in Newport Beach for 25 years and had never walked through Castaways Park during the Exchange Club's "Field of Honor" flag display. Exactly 1,776 American flags blanket every pathway, paved and unpaved, throughout the park, and each flagpole is adorned with a yellow ribbon honoring a different soldier who gave his life in combat to this country. Some also have pictures and brief life stories of the honored dead. As you walk through the park, with the flags flying in unison as far as the eye can see and read the heroes' names and their stories, you are humbled to an unspeakable degree.

May God bless America.
