Albany- The Southwest Georgia Exchange Club hopes their healing field will help people to associate the American Flag with the September 11th tragedy.

The open field across from Outback will be filled with a thousand American flags on Thursday. It's called a Healing Field. Flags can be purchased in the memory of or in honor of a soldier or loved one. A yellow ribbon will be tied to the flag with the soldiers name.

"They can come out and make a donation of 30 dollars, between now and as long as the flags last, we'll have a thousand flags," said Dick Neff, The Healing Field.

Students from Dougherty and Lee County Schools will have an opportunity to learn flag etiquette. On Sunday September 11th a dedication ceremony will be held where they will read aloud the names of Georgia troops killed in the action in Iraq.
