Creating an awe-inspiring panorama, United States flags will fly in a solemn formation at Hoosic Valley Central School during May of 2022. This stirring display of 1000 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 individuals currently serving in our military, fallen servicemen & women and all veterans. 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. Americans meet the challenges of history and overcome hardships becoming stronger. That is just who we are. The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.

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 Schaghticoke Field of Honor® patriotic display and walk with us among the posted flags.  Additionally, the display will raise funds for Patriot Flight, Inc.

The display is open to all without charge. Don’t miss it!

Thank You
