Homefront America Field of Honor®

Mission San Juan Capistrano is thrilled to announce our continued partnership with Homefront America in hosting their 2023 Field of Honor during Memorial Day weekend, Tuesday May 23, through Monday, May 29. The Mission’s Courtyard will transform into an awe-inspiring Field of Honor of more than 400 (3′ x 5′) American flags, each standing seven-feet tall in solemn formation, waving proudly and magnificently in honor of military, veterans, first responders, including K-9 and equestrian Heroes. Active duty, veterans first responders and Mission Preservation Society members will receive free admission to the Mission throughout the exhibit.
We invite the community to sponsor individual flags to honor a specific military member, veteran and/or first responder for their selfless sacrifices they have made to safeguard our way of life and communities. Sponsorships begin at $50/flag with all proceeds benefiting Homefront America’s charitable programs for military families. A $50 sponsor level also includes an individual membership to the Mission San Juan Capistrano’s Preservation Society and sponsorship benefits increase with various levels up to $1000.
