George C. Marshall High School's Class of 2019 will celebrate the Memorial Day holiday by creating a Field of Honor on May 26-29. This field of American flags will be displayed in front of Marshall High School along Route 7.
Marshall High students are inviting the community to support the Field of Honor and their class by sponsoring flags to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military or to recognize the service of a veteran or an active duty service member. For each flag sold, a donation will be made to a local veteran’s organization and the students can send an e-card to the family or the honoree to let them know they have been honored with a photo of the Field of Honor.
Flags sponsorship costs one flag for $5 or five flags for $20.
The Class of 2019 will plant the flags on May 26 and remove them on May 30.
Deadline to purchase flags is May 24. Visit Pay4SchoolStuff.com (select Field of Honor) or complete an order form and mail ATTN: Field of Honor with a check payable to Marshall HS. Address: Marshall High School, 7731 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA 22043.
