(POCATELLO, ID) – The Field of Heroes display in Pocatello could end next year. The popular Memorial Day exhibit has attracted national attention. The field features thousands of wooden crosses honoring American military members who’ve died in the Iraq and Afghan Wars. Organizer Susan Thurm tells KIDK that she wants the exhibit to end on a high note. The Obama administration has set a tentative withdrawal date for all combat troops in Afghanistan for December 31 of this year.
