Mark your calendar for Flags for Heroes 2022, November 2-14, 2022
Please join us Saturday, November 6th at 3:30 PM inside The Utica Parkway Center for our 7th annual Flags for Heroes recognition ceremony.
This year will be remembering the 100th Anniversary of The tomb of the Unknow Soldier, the 30th Anniversary of Desert Storm and the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 with respective speakers that have served, along with musical tributes and representation from local dignitaries.
After the ceremony we will assemble at the Healing Field where we will have a candlelight tribute with a blessing for all flags sponsored a 21 gun salute and concluding with the playing of Taps.
A beautiful vista of red, white and blue will appear on Utica’s Memorial Parkway as The Good News Center hosts its annual Flags for Heroes display of 1,000 United States Flags. The days leading up to and surrounding Veterans Day are the perfect time to remember and honor the men and women who have by their dedication become heroes in our lives.
Our unity as a people is expressed by the U.S. flag, which symbolizes our shared history, values and aspirations. As we have come together to overcome a pandemic that has ravaged the entire world, we have gained increased appreciation for heroes who have placed themselves in harm’s way to protect and serve us all.
Proceeds will benefit Sitrin’s Military Rehabilitation Program which treats Post 9/11 Veterans. The Military Rehab Program has both traditional and alternative treatment options. Please view the video on this page to see more about the Military Rehabilitation Program at Sitrin.
