5th graders place flags at Kastman Park in remembrance of 9/11

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Prosperity Bank, the City of Lubbock and Lubbock ISD partnered together for the 17th Annual American Tribute Flag Field.

The flags will fly Sept. 9 to Sept. 16 at Kastman Park, Lynnhaven Drive and South Loop 289.

This Patriot Day also serves to memorialize and celebrate first responder and military service members. 

Fifth graders from Miller Elementary planted the flags Monday morning. 

"I mean these kids weren't born whenever that happened, so it's really important for them to realize what occurred on that day and just to honor our first responders and the lives we lost," Mackenzie Means, Marketing Specialist with Prosperity Bank, said. 

Lubbock police and fire fighters will take the flags down next Monday.
