Sheridan, WY – Field of Honor® 2013

August 9-11, 2013

From the 9th through the 11th of August Sheridan County will host their first Field of Honor® flag display at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains.  The Healing Field® and Field of Honor® flag display programs began on the first anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks as a way to depict the immensity of loss we suffered, not in depressing images of broken concrete and twisted steel, but through an uplifting posting of three thousand flags—one for each victim lost that day.  The concept spread to communities around the country and expanded to embrace other causes.  Sheridan County has chosen to present a Field of Honor event in tribute to our veterans, our military and our first responders.   Organizers and volunteers will post 1,000 U.S. flags on the lawns of Sheridan College located at 3059 Coffeen Avenue.  Flags can be sponsored to honor individual veterans, service members and first responders.  Proceeds from sponsorship of the flags will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Please join with the Sheridan County community by sponsoring flags, volunteering to help and especially by visiting this impressive display of our national flag.  Walk with us through the sea of red, white and blue at an event that will draw Sheridan County residents together in a memorable experience.
