Visitors to the Louisiana State Capitol this memorial day weekend find a special tribute to Louisiana's fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines.

The Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana planted 10,000 American flags on the capitol's front lawn.

They represent the 10,000 Louisiana men and women killed in combat since the Revolutionary War.  The group's president, Janet Broussard, said the flags will be on display until 6 p.m.

The flags will remain in place through the holiday.
