NOTE: During the late winter and early spring of 2012 the display was revamped; crosses were reconditioned, names were reprinted, information sign boards and banners were added. When seasonal storm conditions impacted the display, the first action plan is to remove the flags -- when severe storm conditions are pending the display may be removed.
May 2013 the Green Cove Spring Junior High School, BETA Club hosted the Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall (The Wall). Great Work – hats off the students, parents and staff! Our Parade of Flags Team “mustered in” to help support their cause during the fall of 2012. Additionally, we provided classroom heritage education for Charles E. Bennett 5th graders and the event by placing flags – with the names - for all Clay County Vietnam fallen at the base of The Wall. This project provided a Re-Birth for the Parade of Flags.

Our long time policy remains – there is no cost to honor a Clay County Fallen Warrior. NEW for 2014, YOU may now honor a Departed Military Veteran or YOU may simply support the cause.
