CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- An annual sign of respect to Chicago's fallen police officers has been set up along the lakefront.
Across from Soldier Field, 586 small flags blow in the breeze.
"Even though it's just a piece of material, they're priceless," said Chicago Police Chaplain Moshe Wolf.
"They represent a soul, a family, an officer who gave his life, who went out there doing what he loves best and that's protecting our city, and he didn't make it home that evening."
A 24-hour vigil will be held at the Gold Star Families Memorial and Park beginning Monday morning.
