VERMILLION, S.D. (KTIV) -- Throughout the week the University of South Dakota Veterans Club is honoring fallen soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan.
There are nearly 6,000 flags representing soldiers killed in the two wars.
The flags stand in a display north of Old Main on the USD campus in Vermillion.
"You hear people's conversations about how many it is and people will come up to you and thank you for setting this up and how they appreciate the reminder," said Eric Greg, USD Veterans Club President.
In a special ceremony Wednesday night, an additional flag will be added to honor Army National Guard soldier Brent Maher from Council Bluffs.
Maher died this week in Afghanistan.
The flags will remain on display until April 17th.
