About the Field of Honor
On September 8 - 10, 2017, over two hundred American flags will decorate the lawn of Mercy Center to pay tribute to veterans, active members of the military, and first responders, such as police officers, fire fighters, and emergency responders. Flags will bear the name of the honored individual, as well as the individual's rank, branch of service, war/campaign served, or organization.
