It all started when John Vinson hung a flag on an overpass to
mourn lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001.
Since then, Vinson’s flag collection has grown to more than 400,
and he has displayed them every year on the anniversary. Last year,
he flew the flags for two days in a large field in West Sacramento
with lights shining on them at night.
