High School Football Team Helps Plant Flags for 9/11 Memorial Display in Idaho

A high school football team helped plant American flags as part of a 9/11 memorial installation in Jerome, Idaho, on September 8.

The event organizers, Crossroads Point, said the installation includes 3,000 eight-foot flags and would be up and open to the public until September 15.

Members of the Jerome High School football team helped set up the display on Wednesday ahead of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

“Part of being a Jerome Tiger is a commitment to service, from youth camps, helping at the local food pantry, moving members of the community, and much more,” Jerome Football wrote on Facebook. “Every two years, the Tigers are given the opportunity to help place American flags at Crossroads Point as part of a September 11th Patriot Day Memorial.”
