Hillside Flag needs your help

One of the largest U.S. flags displayed to honor those who sacrificed their lives on September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA as well as others who have served to preserve our way of life, will appear on a Bay Area hillside.

Hayward resident and Air Force veteran Tom Ballard, has vowed to remember those who have sacrificed and served the United States of America. On the tenth anniversary of 911, a 6,500 square foot flag, constructed of 8,000 square feet of vinyl, 1,000 grommets and 1,000 stakes will be "flown" on the hills of Hayward. Its measurements will coincide exactly with the dimensions an official U.S. flag and those used for the first rendition... 123' by 65'.
