Covina’s Field of Valor November 8th-16th

A remarkable event began in Covina, CA in November of 2012.  The community saw the birth of a new project started by the Covina Rotary Club on the fields of Sierra Vista Middle School. For the entire week preceding Veteran’s Day, two thousand American flags flew as a patriotic tribute honoring all Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel for their dedication and service to our nation, preserving our security and our freedom.  Visitors and volunteers from the surrounding communities experienced an amazing sense of patriotism while viewing and honoring a display of the flags – star spangled banners standing tall and proud, and by participating in various activities during the week ending on Veterans’ Day.

fov-childThe majority of the flags were sponsored and specifically dedicated by groups and individuals honoring a friend or family member. Throughout the week, various speakers, concerts, student tours, and military fly-overs made the field an exciting and magnificent tribute to our veterans.

What a better way to spend Veteran’s Day than to take your family to witness this awe-inspiring sight? If you go please remember to snap a few pictures and share them on our Instagram (@CovinaResidents) and Facebook Fan page (Covina Residents).
