November 6 – 14, 2020

Central Middle School Field, 101 Central Street (at corner of Williams St), Stoneham, MA 02180

Located 9 miles north of downtown Boston, the town of Stoneham brings their first Field of Honor® to The City’s greater metro area.

During the days surrounding Veterans Day, a stunning display of United States flags will stand posted in ordered rows and columns. This beautiful display of the Stars and Stripes honors our military and veterans with special remembrance of those who gave their lives in defense of freedom. Each flag may be dedicated to an individual who honored Old Glory through dedicated service and sacrifice in the following areas:

  • Current Service Member
  • Veteran
  • Law Enforcement
  • Fire Fighter
  • EMS
  • COVID-19 Hero
  • Other Hero

There is a story behind each posted flag.  These men and women have become our heroes, and they deserve to be honored and always remembered.

Flags dedicated for $50 will be posted in the formation to create a panorama of red, white & blue that forms a lasting memory for visitors to the Field of Honor® flag formation.   Proceeds will go to support the Stone ham Veterans Assistance Fund.

The Town of Stoneham’s Veterans Assistance Fund is designed to help veterans who are residents of Stoneham who demonstrate financial hardship. The Veterans Assistance Fund is funded by the community and is awarded on a case by case basis. This fund provides a temporary/emergency solution to help veterans who are in a dire financial need to assist them through a financial crisis.

This is a display that must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

The Field of Honor® display is a gift made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or by making a donation. There is no charge to visit the Field of Honor® display, and all are invited to share this inspirational experience.
