May 2, 2016

CATONSVILLE, MD -- A Charlestown Field of Honor Memorial Day weekend display of 1,000 full-size American flags will honor military veterans. Hubbard Funeral Home is presenting the Charlestown Field of Honor. This event benefits Charlestown's Benevolent Care Fund and Warfighter Sports, a nonprofit that provides adaptive sports to severely wounded veterans free of cost.

This display of 1,000 American flags pays tribute to the hundreds of thousands of past and present American veterans who have served their country and to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Each flag is purchased by individuals and organizations to honor a military veteran.  

The Opening Ceremonies will be held Saturday, May 28, at 11 a.m., near the entrance of Charlestown retirement community, 715 Maiden Choice Lane, Catonsville, MD. (Note: The Opening Ceremonies will be preceded by a 5K Run & 1-Mile Walk, which will begin at 9 a.m.).

With the help area business sponsors and more than 100 volunteers, each American flag will be flown atop 8-foot poles inside the 110-acre Charlestown campus.

The Charlestown Field of Honor is open to the public Friday, May 27 – Monday, May 30 (a Fireworks Display takes place Friday evening, May 27, at 9 p.m.).
