The Rotary Club of Tampa is asking the community to purchase flags in honor of our heroes who have gone above and beyond, with a special ceremony scheduled at Veterans Memorial Park on Veterans Day.

TAMPA, Fla. — With Veterans Day coming up, it’s a time to reflect on all of those who have served our country. The Rotary Club of Tampa is honoring that service, one by one, with a symbol we all recognize, the American flag.

Walking through Veterans Memorial Park, reading the names on the World War II memorial wall, Jonathan Moore remembers who paved the way for us to proudly fly Old Glory.

“Rotary is all about service above self and when we do this event we work, we sweat, we put these flags up to honor these special people,” said Moore, a member of Rotary Club Tampa and event organizer.

Moore, whose own grandfather served in World War II, hopes to install 300 American flags across the park for their second annual Flags For Heroes celebration on Veterans Day

“So the event will be full of pomp and circumstance,” said Moore. “It just produces a great feeling of peace and unity and it’s a wonderful event.”

The flags cost $100 apiece, each one honoring a hero in our community, including a medallion with their name on it. It can be a veteran, a first responder, a health care worker or just a loved one.
