This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Bryan Rotary Club Field of Valor.
Bunny Pratt, Events Chair, says the 1,000 American flag salute at Veterans Park honors active military, veterans, first responders and healthcare workers.
“These are not teeny tiny flags, these are large flags on 10 foot flag poles, and when you see them in mass, it really is a neat experience,” says Pratt.
Pratt says for $50, you can tag a flag in honor or memory of someone’s service to our country or community.
“Your name will be put as the donor and your honoree name will be put on there as well and what they are being honored for,” says Pratt.
Pratt encourages people to post their stories online with the hashtag #togetherwehonor.
The Bryan Rotary Club Field of Valor will be on display from November 6th through November 14th at Veterans Park.
