A Flag Field of Honor will be at the USS Orleck in the grassy area over Veterans Day Weekend to honor the deceased veterans of the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts. If you would like to purchase one of the flags to honor a relative or other veterans, they are a donation of $100.
The Exchange Club of Jacksonville and Jax Naval Museum is pleased to present the Field of Honor® where members of the community can honor the deceased heroes in the Korean and Vietnam conflicts with an American Flag. This stirring display of 360 flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our veterans. Flags can be purchased in memory or honor of service members that listed NE Florida as their home. Proceeds from Field of Honor® will benefit the Jacksonville Naval Museum and the Exchange Club of Jacksonville FL. This moving display is a gift made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support by purchasing a flag, making a donation or becoming an event sponsor.

Creating an awe-inspiring panorama, United States flags will fly in a solemn formation at USS Orleck during November of 2023. This stirring display of 325 flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes. Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story. Flags may be sponsored to honor fallen servicemen and women, Vietnam Veterans, and Korean War Veterans. This unique event is the perfect opportunity for all of us to remember and honor our many heroes. “Honoring those that died from the area while the USS Orleck was in commission” is the perfect theme for this year’s event.
The Stars & Stripes reminds us of who we are as a people. Americans meet the challenges of history and overcome hardships becoming stronger. That is just who we are. The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.
This moving display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.
This is an experience hard to describe, but never to be forgotten. We invite all to visit the Jacksonville Field of Honor® patriotic display and walk with us among the posted flags. Additionally, the display will raise funds for the Exchange Club Family Center and JAX Naval Museum.
The display is open to all without charge. Don’t miss it!
