NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – As the country celebrates Veterans Day Friday, a field of honor is on display in Hermitage, Tennessee.

The display is at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage on the eastern part of the property.

A thousand flags make up the field of honor was organized by the Colonial Flag Foundation.

The foundation sets up fields all across the country and are sponsored by loved ones of living vets and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Volunteers spent hours placing the flags with yellow ribbons on the poles Thursday.

“This is so important for America. Veterans have given the ultimate sacrifice, a lot of them have and this is just a wonderful tribute to current and former veterans that we can honor them and tell them thank you,” said field of honor chairman Desha Hearn.

The field opens at 2 p.m. with an opening ceremony and will remain open to the public until 2 p.m. Sunday.
