For the sixth year, DAV (Disabled American Veterans) has launched its Field of Flags campaign to honor a veteran close to their heart by flying a flag in the field. The campaign will run through September 11.
DAV is partnering with the City of Erlanger to display sponsored flags at Flagship Park for 10–14 days starting on September 17 (weather permitting).
“Erlanger is honored to host DAV’s Field of Flags campaign in Flagship Park again this year,” said Erlanger Mayor Jessica Fette. “It’s truly breathtaking to see the flags and know each one represents the service and sacrifices of a veteran. Please join Erlanger and DAV in giving thanks to our heroes.”
Through donations to DAV, the public can honor veterans through the Field of Flags campaign in several ways—a virtual flag, a flag placed at the park, or a garden flag for their home. Every $1 donated to DAV leads to $179 in direct benefits to veterans of all generations through the organization’s free programs and service. Go to fieldofflags.org to learn more.
“The Field of Flags campaign serves as a reminder of the sacrifices veterans have made,” said DAV National Adjutant Marc Burgess. “It’s an easy way to pay homage to a veteran in your life and a great way to support those forever changed in service and their families.”
