PARK CITY, Utah -- Flags went up all over a Park City hospital to honor military veterans who served our country and those who continue to serve.

As part of the National Ability Center's 2nd annual Field of Flags, 150 flags were unfurled on the grounds of historic Miner's Hospital, 1354 Park Ave., Friday.

Volunteers from the community helped put them in, and it's an expression of support from the National Ability Center and the Park City community for active service members and veterans.

“It shows those in our community that have served us that we are here supporting them,” said Julia Rametta, who is an events manager for the National Ability Center. “And the National Ability Center serves returned veterans and wounded warriors, and so we wanted to make sure that we were showing our support throughout veterans week.”

The site will be open to the public, at no charge, through November 14.
