White crosses were brought to the road outside the private ranch of former president George Bush during the Camp Casey protest prompted by Cindy Sheehan, mother of fallen soldier Casey Sheehan.  For months she pleaded for the president to talk to her to explain why her son had died. George Bush never did.

On August 15, 2005 an angry Texan drove his truck over the field of crosses, smearing tire tracks across them and the names of fallen Americans attached.  The man was found and later arrested when a patrol officer saw a cross wedged in his truck bumper as he sped away.  


Those crosses and names were later constructed in to the flag above.
