We invite all area residents to take some time to walk among the flags and take note of the many names and photographs attached to each flag pole. The flags will remain in Draper Park until Monday, June 6. We will install them again on Wednesday, June 29 in time for the Independence Day holiday.
We launched the Field of Flags back in 2016 in partnership with the Milford Corps of the Salvation Army. We also work collaboratively with Jim Asam and the Parks Department and with support from John Pilla and the Veterans Services office. In addition, many local groups, businesses, and residents volunteer to help Citizens for Milford install and take down the flags for each display. We could not execute this tribute to our veterans and service members without their assistance. In particular, we would like to recognize the employees of Milford Federal, many local veterans, and members of the Milford Veterans Advisory Council and the US Army Recruiting Station in Milford.
THANK YOU partners, volunteers, and flag sponsors for supporting this important community project. And last, but certainly not least….THANK YOU to ALL WHO SERVED and CONTINUE TO SERVE!
