Please understand FNF is in honor of the brave men and women who choose to serve and pay the cost of freedom proudly and without complaint; all the while displaying HONOR, INTEGRITY, STRENGTH, SELFLESSNESS, CHARACTER, LOYALTY, COURAGE, RESPECT, & DUTY.
Some highlights, to mention a few include the "Missing Man Table", Veterans Pinning Ceremony, USO Dance, Flag Retirement Ceremony, and more.
The "appreciation ceremony" will conclude with the presentation of 2 American Flags flown during the 3 day event to an honored living Veteran and 1st Responder. "Taps" will be played by a single bugler to conclude the ceremony.
This event is free to all and we encourage those who have and are currently serving to join us and allow us to serve you.
We encourage civilians to join us and take this opportunity to personally thank those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom and the freedom of many around the world.
Freedom's Never Free
SSgt John J. Ignash, U.S. Army, Korean and Vietnam Veteran, once stated, "Freedom IS free for those who have never served," and their sacrifice carries over to their families.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their worn and tattered American Flags to be retired properly.
