The Exchange Club of Niceville hosts the Field of Valor each year to honor the fallen heroes from Florida since September 11, 2001 serving in Afghanistan or Iraq. Never forget those fallen heroes who’ve served in Iraq and Afghanistan paying the ultimate price protecting our freedom and way of life. 348 large American flags, posted atop 8 ft. poles, will be displayed in perfect rows and columns in the grassy field at the north end of the Mullet Festival grounds in Niceville Florida. Each flag bears the name of the serviceman or woman who gave their life in the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Donations will go to help the Niceville Exchange Club and the Fisher House Foundation provide service to the community. To view last year’s event, click here.
