Field of Honor: 500 flags represent those who have served

May 22—NORTH ANDOVER — It was a sunny Saturday in North Andover as folks jogged, walked or biked past the Commons. As people came through, their attention was drawn to a grouping of flags, each placed a few feet apart, 500 in total. Some only glanced, but others were drawn to the field.

Marie Golab, out for a stroll, paused for a moment at one of the flags and then went on her way.

"It means a lot," said Golab.
