Covina Field of Valor

The Covina Rotary Club has created a very special tribute for Veterans this year in the week building up to Veterans Day. The display, called the Field of Valor consists of 2,001 American Flags serving as a tribute to all those who served as well as those in Active Duty at the present time.

The display itself is located on the grounds of Sierra Vista Middle School, 777 Puente Avenue in Covina. The flags will be on display through Sunday, November 11th. In addition to the field of American Flags, there will be special events each day throughout the week. All funds raised from sponsorships and donations will benefit the Ontario USO, which provided services to Military Families.

This Saturday will be Military Resources Day. The field will be open from 8 AM to 8 PM with day long entertainment beginning at 9. There will be service booths for Active Military and Veterans. Sunday will be a very special Veterans Day with a Ceremony beginning at 10 AM that will include Keynote Speaker John Mc Dannel and a USAF Flyover. It will be a very special day of recognizing our Military forces and the sacrifices they make on our behalf every day.

Get more information at their Website, Covina Field of Valor. The event is being hosted by the Covina Rotary. Check it out and Happy Veterans Day to all the devoted menbers of our Military past and present.
