Lawrence, IN 2021 – 4th Annual Field of Honor®

July 2nd through July 5th, 2021
5440 Herbert Lord Road, Indianapolis, IN 46216

An inspiring vista of red, white & blue will appear over the Independence Day weekend along 5440 Herbert Lord R.D, Indianapolis, IN.  The Exchange Clubs Ft. Benjamin Harrison join together again to post 500 United States flags in a tribute honoring our military, veterans, first responders and the heroes in our lives.

There is a story of service and sacrifice surrounding each posted flag to remind the mature and to teach the youth that our freedoms have been purchase by others with many paying the cost with their very lives.

The panorama is hard to adequately describe, but once experienced it is not to be forgotten.  There will be no charge to visit the Field of Honor® display, and all are invited to walk with us through the ordered rows of flags. This is an event not to be missed.

Field of Honor® flags may be sponsored in tribute to individual veterans who returned as well as those who did not return.  Currently serving men & women and first responders may also be honored.  Flags are sponsored for $30, and they are received by the sponsors at the end of the event.

The Lawrence display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.

Thank You
