Site of the former St. Mary’s Hospital
1400 Vermont Street, Quincy, IL 62301

Quincy’s 9th Annual Field of Honor® event honors those who have honored the flag with the display of the flag.  There is no more appropriated place to display 1,000 U.S. flags in honor of our veterans than at the former St. Mary’s Hospital and this magnificent formation of the Stars & Stripes could not be posted at a more beautiful site.

The posted flags not only create this memorable event, but their display continues through the year as the flags spread through the Quincy area as they are flown on holidays at homes and businesses.

Everyone is invited to visit the Field of Honor® and to support the Quincy Exchange Club in presenting an event that will draw area residents together honoring those who have served us to protect our freedom.

The Field of Honor® flag event and the Flags of Honor neighborhood flag programs promote the display of the Stars and Stripes throughout the Quincy community.

Thank you for your support!

1000 flags on display for veterans
Quincy (WGEM) — The Field of Honor, with 1000 flags, is now standing in Madison Park in Quincy. One by one the flags were put up by volunteers with the Quincy Exchange Club for the fifth year in a row.

Field of Honor®
QUINCY — Dennis Koch did not need much time to craft a response to an inquiry about what makes the Field of Honor so special. Koch is a member of the Quincy Exchange Club, the service organization that is responsible for the annual display on the grounds of Madison Park.

Field of Honor flag display rescheduled
The Field of Honor, a display of 1000 flags put on by the Exchange Club of Quincy, has been rescheduled due to weather conditions. The display at Madison Park will be available for viewing beginning next Friday, November 16th through Sunday, November 18th. The Field of Honor was originally scheduled for Veteran’s Day weekend.

Quincy a ‘model community’ for Gus Macker
The Exchange Club now plans to focus fundraising efforts on its American Flag program. For $30 a year, it will put a flag in a participant’s front yard four times a year — Memorial Day, Flag Day, the Fourth of July and Veterans Day. The club is also sponsoring a Field of Honor at Madison Park, where 1,000 American flags will be displayed on Veterans Day.
