May 28 – 31, 2021
Location: To Be Announced
United States flags will fly in a solemn formation during May of 2021 creating an awe-inspiring panorama. This stirring display of 300 flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes. Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story. Flags may be sponsored to honor all Veterans and flag loving American’s. This unique event is the perfect opportunity for all of us to remember and honor our many heroes.
The Stars & Stripes reminds us of who we are as a people. As Americans we become stronger as we meet challenges and overcome hardships. The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.
“Honoring America’s Flag” is the perfect theme for the 9th Annual Field of Honor® display hosted by the Exchange Club of Wilson County and American Legion Post 281.
This moving 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.
This is an experience hard to describe, but never to be forgotten. We invite all to visit the Mt Juliet Field of Honor® patriotic display and walk with us among the posted flags. Additionally, the display will raise funds for community programs and charities of the Exchange Club of West Wilson County and the American Legion Post 281.
The display is open to all without charge. Don’t miss it!
