As the war in Iraq moved past 2,000 U.S. soldiers killed there, Kenai Peninsula citizens honored those dead by putting out 2,000 flags in front of Soldotna Creek Park along the Sterling Highway on Sunday. There also were banners that read slogans such as, "Support the troops — Bring them home." As to why they decided to hold such an event, Gina Savchuk-Jones of Kasilof said, "Because apathy runs rampant. It's time people took notice." Her son, Tom, recently returned — alive — from a tour of duty in Iraq.
