Event Details

Since its inception in 2008, The North Carolina Field of Honor has been an annual tradition in Downtown Fayetteville. The Cool Spring Downtown District is proud to work with the Airborne and Special Operations Museum Foundation as a partner in the 12th Annual Field of Honor.

Hundreds of flags will fly on the parade grounds of the Airborne and Special Operations Museum. Each flag comes with its own story and displays a tag identifying both the person who sponsored the flag and the flag honoree. This living display of heroism flies as a patriotic tribute to the strength and unity of Americans, and honors all who are currently serving, those that have served, and the men and women who have made the supreme sacrifice for our nation’s security and freedom.

Flags will proudly display the name of its sponsor and honoree on the Parade Field of the U.S. Army Airborne & Special Operations Museum.

Flags may be purchased to honor the memory of a veteran or current service member from any branch of service.
