5,000 American flags line Northwest Military Highway
SAN ANTONIO – The full length of Northwest Military Highway is now lined with American Flags from Loop 410 to Camp Bullis. Close to 150 volunteers spent Friday morning planting more than 5,000 flags. The flag-placing event is sponsored by the American Spirit Alliance, a nonprofit dedicated to support of the military. Myers and her sisters, whose father served in the military, believe planting the flags was a meaningful gesture. In the late 1930s and early 1940s, troops trekked on foot some 22 miles down the corridor that is now Northwest Military Highway from Fort Sam Houston to Camp Bullis for artillery training and then back again.
