Boots March to Iraqi War Dead

LARGO -

The peacefulness of a green meadow at Largo Central Park was broken by a display of combat boots. One hundred seventy-three, to be exact. That's the number of soldiers from Florida who never came back from Iraq.

Even though this is one of only three places where this kind of display is being shown, several other cities in Pinellas County refused the display. Supporters say that was likely because the display includes 250 shoes that represent Iraqi civilian casualties.
