Wake Co. Field of Honor Honors Veterans, Community Heroes
RALEIGH, NC (WNCN)—The third annual Wake County Field of Honor is now open to visitors.
More than 500 flags are displayed in “tribute to all veterans, including those currently serving, those who have returned home and their families after service, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice by leaving family, friends and our grieving nation,” officials said in a release.
First responders, medical professionals and others who serve the community are also honored, officials said.
“We are proud to host this red, white and blue event for the third year,” said Randy Hall, co-chair of the organizing committee. “This is a fitting tribute to all of our veterans as well as the police, fire, EMS and medical professionals who have been on the front lines of efforts against COVID-19. We invite everyone to come walking among the flags. It’s an impressive sight.”
Officials said that flags can be sponsored for $35 to honor “members of our armed forces, veterans, first responders, medical professionals, educators and other community heroes.”
The exhibit is open to the public Friday through Memorial Day at 11:15 a.m. at the Exchange Club of West Raleigh Baseball Complex at 830 Barringer Drive, Raleigh.
