The 2017 Field of Honor will  hold its Dedication Ceremony at 10:00AM Saturday, May 20 and will be open to the public through June 30. The Fayetteville Downtown Alliance’s Field of Honor event is a way for the community to Honor and Memorialize the military that is such an important part of this community. It celebrates the veteran, regardless of time served, branch of military or war time service. Flags may be picked up or shipped at a nominal cost after the field comes down.

Every flag honors someone who is currently serving, those who have served, and the men and women who have made the supreme sacrifice for our nation’s security and freedom. Each flag comes with its own story and displays a tag identifying the person who sponsored the flag and the flag honoree. Flags may be purchased on line at Field of Honor Flag

Building of the field takes place the Second Saturday in May at 8am, tear down this year will take place on Saturday July 1st at 8am. If you wish to volunteer to help with the field, contact (910) 643-2773 or email events@asomf.org.

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation supports the museum with marketing, advertising and financial support for its programs and exhibits. Opening the doors on August 16th, 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original United States Army’s Test Platoon’s first parachute jump, the museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, video theater and a motion simulator ride. It is located in Historic Downtown Fayetteville on the corner of Bragg Boulevard and Hay Street, adjacent to the city’s Freedom Memorial Park and the recently built North Carolina Veteran’s Park. The main gallery is designed as a self-guiding tour, in chronological order, through the history of the airborne and special operations soldiers, from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes throughout the year and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army, airborne and special operation units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present. For a nominal fee visitors can ride the 24 seat motion simulator. Find our privacy policy here.
