Armistice Day ended “the Great War,” which we know as World War I, and nations around the world designated November 11th as a day to honor the veterans who fought in that war. Billed at the “war to end all wars,” but World War II, Korea and other conflicts soon followed and Armistice Day became Veterans Day to honor veterans who fought in all our nation’s wars. The Elizabeth City Rotary Club’s Field of Honor® focuses on honoring those who gave their lives in defense of our nation and veterans who have served our nation at home and abroad.
In tribute for those who by their actions have become heroes in our lives, the Rotary Club brings their inaugural Field of Honor® display to the northeastern corner of North Carolina.
It is appropriate to honor our heroes with display of the flag that they honored though their service and sacrifice. The Field of Honor® display of U.S. Flags brings volunteers, residents and visitors together as hundreds of flags are posted. This inspiring and memorable panorama of red, white and blue is hard to describe, but once experienced it is not to be forgotten.
The Elizabeth City Field of Honor® display is a gift to the Pasquotank River and Intracoastal Waterway area made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag, making a donation or doing both. Programs of the Elizabeth City Rotary Club and the Elizabeth City Morning Rotary Club will benefit from funds raised through the Field of Honor® display.
Please visit the Field of Honor® display and invite your family and friends to walk with you among the ordered rows of U.S. flags. There is no better way to observe Veterans Day.
