The Exchange Club of Niceville, in partnership with the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, Inc., hosts the Field of Valor each year to honor service members from Florida that have been killed in action while serving in Afghanistan or Iraq since September 11, 2001. This week long event is free and open to the public. Opening ceremonies are September 11 at 10:00 a.m. and with this the 20th anniversary of 9/11, please make a special effort to join us this year.
Over 350 large American flags, measuring 3 feet by 5 feet and mounted on 8-foot poles, will be displayed in perfect rows and columns on the grassy field at the north end of the Mullet Festival grounds in Niceville, Florida. Each flag bears the name of a service member who gave his or her life while stationed in Afghanistan or Iraq. There is no more reverent way to honor the ultimate sacrifice than to ensure they will always be remembered. For more information, call (850) 306-0131 or email us at Support@NicevilleExchange.Club.
