Strict compliance with non profit, non political non protest principals is the legacy and guarantee of any approved & licensed Healing Field or Field of Honor event.
Then and Now
The Healing Field program started out as a way to commemorate the lives of those lost to us on September 11, 2001. Since the first Healing Field display in 2002, hundreds of communities across America have hosted a Healing Field or Fields of Honor to raise money and awareness for a growing array of causes.
These special displays of fields of American flags have helped to honor the sacrifice of our service men and women, raise awareness for the tragedy of child abuse or domestic violence, honor veterans past and present, raise awareness for heart disease and cancer and more.
From Patriot Day to Veterans' Day to declaring your own day to honor those currently serving in the armed forces, Healing Fields and Fields of Honor are making a difference all across this land. More uses and applications for a flag field event are being adopted each year.
Paul Swenson, founder and creator saw the potential of the Healing Field memorial events as a way to heal America. That day on the first field in 2002 Paul committed his resources and energy to forming a foundation that would assist other communities to experience the amazing healing and hopeful effects of uniting for this great purpose.
