Millington provides, on many levels, an exceptional site for a Field of Honor® display of United States Flags.  Designated a Three-Star community by Tennessee’s legislature, Millington proudly displays the three stars depicted on the state’s flag as part of the city’s emblem, which is completed by a U.S. flag flying on a staff in recognition of the city’s additional recognition by the legislature as “Flag City, Tennessee” over thirty years ago. Read More…

Event Details

Field of Flags Millington provides, on many levels, an exceptional site for a Field of Honor® display of United States Flags.  Designated a Three-Star community by Tennessee’s legislature, Millington proudly displays the three stars depicted on the state’s flag as part of the city’s emblem, which is completed by a U.S. flag flying on a staff in recognition of the city’s additional recognition by the legislature as “Flag City, Tennessee” over thirty years ago. As if this was not enough to qualify as an ideal location for a Field of Honor® display, Millington is home of the U.S. Navy’s largest inland base, the Naval Support Activity Mid-South, which is home base for the Navy Personnel Command, Navy Recruiting Command, the Navy Manpower Analysis Center as well as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Finance Center with more than 7,500 military members, civilian workers, and contractors assigned to work on the base. The Millington Exchange Club will host the event where hundreds of U.S. flags will stand posted in a solemn formation on a field adjacent to Highway 51 as a tribute to active military, veterans, first responders and hometown heroes.  Flag City residents will appreciate the meaning of posting U.S. flags to honor these heroes.  There is no place better to do this. The panorama of red, white and blue is hard to adequately describe, but once experienced it is not to be forgotten.  There is no charge to visit the Field of Honor® display, and all are invited to walk with us through the ordered rows of flags. Flags are sponsored for $25 with the sponsors retaining the flags at the close of the event, which can then be displayed in surrounding communities as mementos of this awe-inspiring event.  Flags may also be sent to sponsors for an additional $7 for shipping. Millington’s Field of Honor® 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. The flags will be on display over the weeks surrounding Memorial Day.  Please support and visit Millington Field of Honor® display. This is an event not to be missed.
