Warrenville VFW Post 8081

Healing Field of Honor

The Warrenville Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 8081 will be hosting a special Memorial Day Event May 19th - 28th 2018. The Warrenville VFW Post will be transformed into a field of 500 American Flags arranged in perfect rows and columns in tribute to those men and women who selfishly served this great Nation. Each flag may be purchased to honor a loved one or family member who has served in the United States Armed Forces. Purchase a flag on our website www.vfwpost8081.com or buy one on the week of the event. Flags are limited. Interested in volunteering? Scroll down to the end to sign up.

This year the Warrenville VFW will also be displaying a 300 foot long replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. This stunning display of heroism will be accompanied by an adjacent reflecting pool and the Healing Field of Honor of 500 flags. 

Opening Ceremony will begin on May 19th, 2018 at 11:00 a.m.
