The flower drop honors and memorializes all veterans who lost their lives defending the US.  The white carnations are in honor of those who fought in WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam.  The red carnations are in honor of those who died in more recent conflicts including the Persian Gulf, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan.
