American Legion post 281 is hosting a display of the Stars and Stripes again this year with the assistance of West Wilson County’s Exchange Club. This amazing event is being held June 12 – 14th which will take place over the two hundred and thirty-eight anniversary of the U.S. flag. The United States Flag has grown to become the great emblem of all that unites us as a people; it symbolizes our shared goals and aspirations.
Every flag honors someone who is currently serving, those who have served, and the men and women who have made the supreme sacrifice for our nation’s security and freedom. The flag is tagged identifying the person who sponsored the flag and the honoree. Take a moment to walk through the hundreds of flags that each come with its own story of love and sacrifice.
The field of honor is the perfect opportunity for all of us to unite as a community to remember and honor our military heroes. Come join in this amazing display of red, white and blue and walk the Field of Honor. This is just one way we can salute those who have sacrificed so much that we may live free. The opening ceremony is scheduled for Friday at 11 am, the closing ceremony is scheduled for Sunday at 2 pm.
ALL GAVE SOME. SOME GAVE ALL.
