The Carolina Field of Honor™
For generations the Triad has been renowned for their many women and men that serve in the armed forces. This becomes more evident with the year 2000 Census statistics that show there are more than 150 thousand veterans in the Triad, the largest concentration of Veterans in the State.

To Honor Those Who Serve this Great Nation
Throughout Triad history, our residents have answered the call to duty in every conflict from WWI through today in Iraq and Afghanistan. This service to our communities and our Country has not gone with our sacrifice by the families that dwell here today. One can only guess the number of family members in our community whose lives were touched by our local heroes. The common denominator is “remembering”. The memories of our family members that served in the Armed forces bring a sound foundation to the history, education and pride of the Triad. These men and women served to ensure our freedoms and protect us. It is our duty to remember these brave servants of our society so that others who visit and live in the Triad can be proud of the commitment that they made to sustain the liberty that our founders provided for us.
The Carolina Field of Honor will be a symbol of historical fact that our community shows the highest respect and honor to our Veterans, those of the past, present and future, a sacred ground for those we respect and honor. Over 150,000 Veterans and their families will have refuge of solace giving them the privilege of remembering their loved ones. The memorial will serve future generations in a beautiful setting, used as both a recreational retreat and the facilities for ceremonies and events honoring those that serve.
The Parade Deck will provide the counties of Guilford and Forsyth a ceremonial platform that can be used by Veterans, and other patriotic organizations: active duty military units, law enforcement, Boy Scouts and many other community groups which honor their achievements in community service.
The park will be designed to accommodate school children, tourists and residents of the area in a comfortable setting that includes a tribute to those in the area who have served in the military. The design will include handicap facilities and a walking trail for visitors. It will truly be a message to all that the Triad understands the price of peace and freedom.
