(ABC 6 News)-- A flag that saw combat overseas has made it across the nation and will be in our area tomorrow.

Bikers will carry an American flag from Eden Prarie to Bergdale's Harley Davidson in Albert Lea.

It's part of a nationwide fundraiser to raise money for members of the armed forces and their families.

The flag started in Wisconsin back in May, and it's being passed along across 48 states in 100 days.

Mark Harig of the Harley Owners Groups says, "There's no way to pay them back and the little bit of recognition they get on the 4th of July or Memorial Day is so minimal that we need to honor these men and women everyday for the sacrifices they give to us."

The flag will be on display until Tuesday morning when the group brings it to Waukon, IA.
