2016 Field of Honor Display

Student Veterans Remember Sept. 11th Attacks

The Kent State Ashtabula Student Veterans Association is once again presenting the Field of Honor in memory of those who lost their lives during the September 11th attacks.  The annual memorial began several years ago with 144 flags encircling the flag pole at the center of campus, but has now grown to nearly 3,000 flags, lining the walkways between Main Hall, the Library, Bookstore and Robert S. Morrison Hall.

For the second year in a row, a total of 2,977 flags have been placed - one for each victim of the attacks.  

The Student Veterans Association and volunteers placed the flags on Sunday, September 4th. The flags will stay on display on the campus through September 11th.  The community is invited and encouraged to come by and see the display.
