Wheaton Park District and Warrenville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8081 will host the Field of Honor 2021 from June 30 to July 4 at Seven Gables Park, 1750 S. Naperville Road in Wheaton.
A display of 2,000 U.S. flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes. Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story. Flags may be sponsored to honor individuals currently serving in our active-duty military, fallen servicemen and servicewomen, first responders, heroes in our lives, veterans, Vietnam veterans, and hometown heroes.
