Field of Honor pays tribute to Veterans, 550 American flags to be displayed at Rochester Common

Vouchers for Veterans, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and feeding veterans, is proud to announce the 2023 Field of Honor display, beginning May 27th and concluding on the evening of May 29th, 2023. The event is hosted by the City of Rochester and will be displayed at the Rochester Common, located on South Main Street.

“The Field of Honor display pays tribute to the brave men and women who have served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Jeanne Grover, founder of Vouchers for Veterans. “We are honored to sponsor such an important event and encourage members of the community to participate in this unique and moving experience.”

The Field of Honor consists of 550 flagpoles, each flying a 3×5 ft. flag with a yellow ribbon and a laminated card identifying the honored Veteran with their name, branch, and rank, along with the branch seal/patch graphically displayed on the card. According to organizers, the display “is an unforgettable experience, hard to describe, but never to be forgotten.”
