Fallen heroes remembered during Albany motorcade


ALBANY, N.Y. – Fallen heroes were remembered Saturday along an American flag draped Route 9 with a motorcade procession.

A community project, Please Remember Me is meant to remember members of the Capital Region community who have given their lives while in combat since WWII.

Along the route, 126 American flags draped with black cloth hung from utility poles, each one representing 12 Capital Region veterans.

The Gold Star family Motorcade Procession began at noon at Albany's city line. It then proceeded down Route 9 in Colonie for about 4 miles to Route 155.

The flags will remain along the route until July 6.
