9th Annual ‘Healing Field – Flags of Remembrance’ in Murfreesboro Opens at The Grove


For nearly a decade, Noon Exchange Club of Murfreesboro has put on the Healing Field Flags of Remembrance event over Memorial Day weekend.

The volunteer-run event is a moving tribute to our veterans, military, and personal heroes. This year’s Healing Field is located at The Grove at Wilkinson Place, and will run through 5pm Monday, Memorial Day.

At this morning’s opening ceremonies, volunteers gathered to dedicate and place hundreds of American flags across the Healing Field.
