Aurora, IL ~ Healing Field® 2013

November 3-13, 2013

Two thousand and thirteen United States flags will stand posted in an unforgettable formation at West Aurora High School this coming November.  The Aurora Healing Field® display of the Stars and Stripes is a central part of a ten daylong event honoring our nation’s veterans which will also bring The Moving Wall™ a half-size replica of the Vietnam Memorial to an adjoining grassy field at the high school.  Replicas of other memorials found at the Washington, D.C. National Mall will honor the veterans of World War II and Korea.  In a true collaborative effort, Larry Eckhardt—known as the Flagman—will bring his two thousand flags to line miles of streets and roads leading to West Aurora High School.  The enormous sacrifice of United States veterans motivates to honor them and to remember their service.   West Aurora High School demonstrates that their students, faculty and administrators take this charge seriously as they produce an event worthy of the men and women who have sacrificed and died to preserve our freedom.

Walk with us through the moving thousands of U.S. flags that will draw the Aurora Community together in an awe-inspiring tribute to America’s veterans.

 PLEASE NOTE: All sponsored flags will be shipped directly to host committee.
