  • George C Marshall High School – Field of Honor – May 26-29

    On May 26-29th, George C. Marshall High School’s Class of 2019 will celebrate the Memorial Day holiday by creating a Field of Honor in front of the high school along Route 7.

    We invite you to support the Field of Honor and the class of 2019 by sponsoring a flag (s) to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military or to recognize the service of a veteran or an active duty service member.

    For each flag sold, GCM will make a donation to ServingTogether and can send an e-card to the family or the honoree to let them know they have been honored with a photo of the Field of Honor.
