September 6-11, 2011 – Ontario Beach Park (4799 Lake Ave.)

343 flags will fly in silent tribute to the 343 firefighters who lost their lives in the Twin Towers on the 10th anniversary of the deadliest attack on American soil.
These 3′ x 5′ flags will be presented on 8′ poles arranged in perfect rows as a part of our 10th anniversary “Operation Patriot”.

Dubbed “Mission 343”, this living display of heroism will be a proud, temporary patriotic display of strength and unity of all Americans. Funds raised will benefit firefighters injured in the line of duty.

Please join us as we walk through this awe inspiring display of our Nation’s Colors. This is the perfect opportunity for all of us to unite as a community and honor 343 of America’s bravest who gave their lives on that one tragic September day. Never Forget.

    It is a pleasure and an honor to sponsor a flag for our fallen heroes of 9/11. I do this in honor of my friend, Peter Bielfeld, FDNY Lader 42.
