Volunteer Molly Castle of Foxborough, plants flags outside of Gillette Stadium, in Foxborough, Massachusetts, USA.

Castle and other volunteers were planting the 2552 flags as a representation of all from Foxborough who have lost their lives defending the United States since the Revolutionary war and will be on display through the Memorial Day weekend.

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the military personnel who had died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The holiday is now observed on the last Monday of May which will be next Monday 25th May.
