the military. Aurora is proud to host The Healing Field during the week of
Veteran’s Day, the most coveted time of the year for this honor.

will be on display on the Plum St. side of West Aurora High School, waving
in the breeze symbolizing the great sacrifice of America’s sons and
daughters, past and present, and their loving families. Prior to November

your loved one who has served or currently serves our country. Afterward you
may pick up your flag or have it shipped to you (small shipping fee).
