Winchester, VA ~ Field of Honor® 2021
May 27-31, 2021
Location: Handley High School ~ 426 Handley Blvd. and route 11, Winchester, Virginia 22601

United States flags will fly in a solemn formation during May of 2021 creating an awe-inspiring panorama. This stirring display of 501 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, veterans, first responders, child abuse prevention, heroes in our lives, and hometown heroes. 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.  As Americans we become stronger as we meet the challenges and overcome hardships.  The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.

“Together we inspire” is the perfect theme for the inaugural Healing Field® of Honor display hosted by Winchester Rotary Club.

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 Winchester, VA Healing Field® of Honor patriotic display and walk with us among the posted flags.  Additionally, the display will raise funds for community programs of the Winchester Rotary Club.

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