Merced Field of Honor
How do you honor someone who has served their country or their community? The Merced Sunrise Rotary has chosen to honor veterans, active duty military, and first responders by placing more than 1,000 United States flags on the front lawn of Merced College. Many of those flags are acquired by community members to honor the service of someone they know. Proceeds from the event go back the community to support various causes: Honor Flights, Veterans groups, First Responders groups, and Castle Airport Museum.
Come participate in this Merced tradition and see the flags waving the week proceeding Veterans Day each year.
