Pan of Healing FIeldClick for Panoramic View of Healing Field

Warrenville VFW Post 8081 will be transformed into a field of 500 American Flags arranged in perfect rows and columns. It will be an awe inspiring tribute to honor those men and who sacrifice the time, talents, and even their lives for our freedom and for this great land. Each flag will fly in honor of a hero, family member, friend, of loved one and will be tagged with your personal words of remembrance and/or honor.

The Healing Field® Committee would like to welcome you to be part of this event. Purchase a flag in honor of all who serve and sacrifice, and at the event’s conclusion, continue the tribute year-round as you take this flag home or share it with your loved one.

All area residents are invited to visit the Healing Field® display and walk amid the flags. Those who have visited a Healing Field® display in surrounding communities know to expect an inspiring and memorable event, and those who are first time visitors will find that the amazing display must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

A few other details you might be interested in:

  • The Flags will be displayed from Wed - Wed (May 20 - May 27, 2015).
  • Flag ceremonies will occur at sinrise and sunset each day the flags are displayed.
  • There will be a ceremony to retire old flags (time to be determined).
  • Memorial Day Ceremony at noon.
  • Take your flag home when the event is over (May 27).
  • The flag costs $35. That includes flag, and pole, with a gold ball on top, and a card to show who the flag is honoring.

How can you help? There are 500 flags to be sold. Buy a flag, and  share this information with your friends and neighbors (email, social media, in person). As a service project, organize your church, scout group, homeowner's association or other group to sell flags. Contact Rudy Keller (rudy_keller@ipsd.org), Karen Leonard (karen_leonard@ipsd.org), or Dan Leonard for brochures and more information.
