Rome, NY 2020 – Field of Honor®

June 5June 15

91 Perimeter Road Rome, NY

June 5-15, 2020
Griffis Business Park, 91 Perimeter Road, Rome, NY 13441

Rome lost 12 residents in the Vietnam, and many more area resident fought on the battlefields of Southeast Asia.  We do not recognize, thank or honor our heroes as often or meaningfully as they deserve.  Created to place a Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the grounds of Rome’s former military installation, Griffis Air Force Base, the New York State Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund has expanded efforts to honor all those who by their actions have become our heroes.  Members of the Armed Forces, Veterans, Firefighters, Police and Emergency Medical Service providers protect and care for us in times of war and emergency, and Rome’s first Field of Honor® Flag display honors all who by their actions have become our heroes.

It is appropriate to honor our heroes with display of the flag that they honored though their service and sacrifice.  Rome’s Field of Honor® display of United States Flags brings volunteers, residents and visitors together as 500 flags are posted at Griffis Business Park. This inspiring and memorable display panorama of red, white and blue is hard to describe, but once experienced it is not to be forgotten.

The Rome 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, making a donation or doing both.

Please visit the Rome Field of Honor® display, which runs June 5th to the 15th and bring your family and friends to experience this magnificent display of the Stars & Stripes.
