Field of Honor®

The 1st Annual Cody, Wyoming Field of Honor® was held JUNE 11 -17, on Stampede Avenue.

In early June volunteers gathered to post 800 hundred United States flags for Cody’s Field of Honor flag display hosted by the Cody Heritage Museum. This sea of red, white and blue waving in the breeze flew as a tribute dedicated to our military, veterans, emergency first responders and others who make us proud to be Americans.

Please join us for the 2013 Field of Honor®.

Thanks to all those who participated in the event!
