Once again, Fayetteville (NC) recognized the service and sacrifice of the men and women of the armed forces with a Field of Honor.  This year 1,300 full-size American flags swept across the lawn of the Airborne & Special Operations Museum during the month of May.

Yellow ribbons and tags were attached with the names of service members, sponsored by members of the public. 

Please check out our teen Flickr page for more pictures of the Field of Honor, the Airborne and Special Operations Museum, and “The Gates” 9-11 Memorial.

The Up and Coming Weekly, News 14 Carolina, The Washington Post, have nice write-ups about the display and the Glory Days celebration.  Those who are interested in sponsoring a flag in 2010 may do so by clicking here.

Happy Memorial Day.  To the men and women, past and present, who have worn the uniform, thank you for your service.
