Welcome to the
2023 Field of Honor


We are honored to bring this event to the community of Merced for the 11th year.  We are continually humbled by the outpouring of patriotism and support for this weeklong event.


The Merced Sunrise Rotary, along with the Merced Community College, would like to thank all of the 2023 sponsors especially our presenting sponsors, Joseph Gallo Farms and the Peter J Gallo Memorial Foundation.

We would be remiss if we didn't thank the many volunteers who give of their time to make this event special.

Plan to explore the Field of Honor to read the stories of our honorees.  Please visit the History of the American Flags exhibit, the 9/11 tribute, the flags of all the services represented on the Field, and our Local Fallen Heroes Memorial.  The Run for the Fallen is also a great shared community experience.

Most importantly we would like to thank all of the honorees who serve or have served our country in the multitude of ways in which they do.
