The Carolina Field of Honor

In 2009, through a joint resolution between Forsyth and Guilford Counties in North Carolina, the location for a memorial park, called the Carolina Field of Honor, was established in the Triad Park. Efforts are underway to raise the funds for construction. Browse through our site to get a feel for the Carolina Field of Honor and the memories it will recall.

We believe without knowledge there is no memory. Yet living and walking among us are every day heroes from Iwo-Jima, Saipan, Guadalcanal, Okinawa, Midway, the Philippines, Germany, Korea, Vietnam, Kosovo, Somalia, Desert Storm, Afghanistan, Iraq and many other expeditionary missions and peacetime assignments.

The park will serve as a time-line to these conflicts that brought fathers, mothers, sons and daughters to the front lines of freedom.

Remembering Rich Brenner

Born in Merchantville, New Jersey, Rich spent the summer of 1967, between his sophomore and junior years of college, as a correspondent in Vietnam. Rich served in the Marines, and then began his full-time television career as a sportscaster in 1975 in Lynchburg, VA. He worked in Portsmouth, Va., Raleigh and Chicago before coming to the Triad. He was respected in all areas of sports reporting for his fair and even coverage.

Rich was bigger that just his love of sports, though. He loved people, had a phenomenal memory for faces and names, and had a bone deep love for his Country, his family and for his family of veterans.
