7th Annual Field of Honor®
Tribute to Veterans, First Responders and All COVID Responders

September 10th – 12th 2021
1437 Blossom Road, Rochester, NY 14610

Americans have honored the Stars & Stripes over the long history of the United States, and the display of over 225 U.S. flags on the lawns of Rochester’s Mercy Center presents a fitting tribute to individuals who through their deeds and service have honored the flag.

Individuals recognized over the seven years by Rochester’s Field of Honor annual events have served in wars stretching back to the American Revolution and including the Civil War, both World Wars, Korea, Vietnam and the war against terror.  In addition, police, firefighters, medical first responders and other heroes have flags posted in their honor.  The flying flags not only forms a stunning vista of red, white & blue but impart a sense of healing.

Flags may be sponsored for $35 to honor our heroes, and then the displayed flags will be retained by each flag’s sponsor at the close of the event.  Proceeds will benefit Mercy Bridges, a ministry which provides tutors who teach basic literacy skills to adults for whom English is a Second Language.

The Rochester Field of Honor® display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of dedicated volunteers. Please show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.

The U.S. flags displayed from September 10th through the 13th produces a stirring formation of the Stars & Stripes. We invite all to walk with us among the posted flags. The display is open to all visitors without charge. Don’t miss it.

Thank You
