Pocatello, Idaho (KIDK) "I think it's probably one of the greatest community acts I've ever witnessed in my life. Just the raw support that we're not forgotten, that people are caring for us and praying for us and being there."
For Staff Sergeant Jason Marshall, he brought his two young sons to the "Idaho Field of Heroes" in Pocatello.
There are 6,431 crosses. Each one has the name, rank and date of death of an American serviceman or woman who died in Iraq or Afghanistan.
And his visit, like many others has a personal tie. This is the case for Justin Sorenson.
"I had to pull him out of the Bradley and he a newborn baby.Never got to see his kid, his daughter," says Sorenson.
Since last year's field of heroes, 367 new crosses have been added.
The field will be open to the public through Monday. It's located outside of Century High School.
