What is Field of Honor®? 

The Field of Honor® program is part of a national movement that started out as a way to commemorate the lives lost on September 11, 2001.
In just a short amount of time, the concept has grown and communities like ours across America are turning to Field of Honor® tributes to raise money and awareness for a growing array of causes. The Field of Honor® is a community project of remembrance, and an expression of humanity and patriotism.
