Those who have visited earlier Murfreesboro Healing Field® events know what to expect and will not be disappointed. Those visiting the event for the first time are in for an awe-inspiring experience. A grassy field posted with hundreds of U.S. flags presents an unforgettable panorama of red, white and blue that has earned the description “healing” as part of its name.

We invite all to visit and support the Murfreesboro Healing Field® Flags of Remembrance display. Walk with us amid the ordered rows of Old Glory where each full-sized flag waves atop an eight-foot white staff in a stirring formation. Walking amid the flags, we remember and reflect upon those who died defending our nation and way of life.
