PHOENIX - Dozens of volunteers set up 10,000 flags in honor of Memorial Day on the University of Phoenix campus.
A ceremony was held at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday to honor the men and women who lost their lives fighting for our freedom.
The ceremony included a bugle player, color guard, and a moment of silence.
Flags will be on display for the community through Friday near Broadway Road and 32nd Street.
The address is 4045 Riverpoint Parkway.
After Friday, the flags will be moved to local veterans cemeteries.
University of Phoenix is working with Folds of Honor Foundation, an organization that helps provide scholarships and assistance to children and spouses of disabled or killed service members.
