Homefront America, Field of Honor®
Los Rios Park, 31831 Los Rios St., San Juan Capistrano, CA
In November 2011, founders Art Hasselbrink and Mamie Yong Maywhort had the opportunity to visit a Field of Honor®. The pageantry of American flags, each measuring 3' x 5', standing 7' tall in solemn formation, fluttering proudly and majestically in the mid-day breeze took their breath away. Simply put: the experience left an indelible imprint in their hearts and minds. And, with the passing of time, their desire to host a Homefront America, Field of Honor® only grew stronger.
Fast forward to May 2016 . . . with the help of friends and supporters, Homefront America transformed Los Rios Historic Park, San Juan Capistrano, into a beautiful Field of Honor®. This inspirational and breathtaking posting of the Stars and Stripes featured several hundred flags as a tribute to our military, veterans, and first responders.
This May, Homefront America will once again bring Field of Honor® to Los Rios Park. Individuals, businesses, and organizations can sponsor flags to honor their special Hero(es), or simply to show gratitude to those who have served, or those who are serving their country and communities today to protect our freedom, and to ensure our safety.
Flag sponsorships are $ 50.00 each. Other sponsorship opportunities are also available. Proceeds from the Field of Honor® flag display will benefit Homefront America's programs for military families.
The spectacular panoramic view of red, white and blue is difficult to adequately describe; however, once experienced, the memorable imprint will live on forever. We invite you to walk with us through this stunning array of U.S. flags, standing tall and proud. This event is not to be missed . . . the experience is life changing.
There is no charge to appreciate the Field of Honor®. Bring the entire family to celebrate and honor those who have and continue to sacrifice so much for the freedoms we enjoy.
The sight is awe-inspiring. The experience is life changing.
