Memorial Day Flag Garden
Join Patriot Place Memorial Day Weekend as we remember and honor our heroes. The names of service men and women in our community will be displayed overlooking Gillette Stadium just outside of Red Robin along with flags placed throughout Patriot Place in honor of those we have lost.
You Are Not Forgotten
In 2012, The New England Patriots dedicated a seat at Gillette Stadium to the thousands of soldiers who are unaccounted for. The permanent black seat in the south end of Gillette Stadium is dedicated to the thousands of soldiers who remain unaccounted for as POW/MIA. The seat features a plaque that reads,
“This unoccupied seat is dedicated to the memory of those brave men and women and to the sacrifices each made in serving this country.”
In Honor and Remembrance of George Boyajian
George proudly served his country as a member of the United States Navy in both WWII And the Korean conflict. During WWII he served aboard the SS-184 Skipjack and the SS-406 Sea Poacher. He and his fellow crew members bravely made eight war patrols of which he was awarded the Submarine Combat Medal. During the Korean Conflict he served aboard the SS-183 Seal. He was honorably discharged from the service with the rank of EM2 (SS.) George worked for the New England Patriots Organization from 1986 – 2015 for both the food and beverage department and the Patriots Hall of Fame presented by Raytheon Technologies. George’s seat and hat are on display at The Hall this weekend.
United States Armed Forces Row Of Honor
The NFL, in it’s partnership with the USO, continues to be a “Force Behind the Forces” and the USO of New England continues to team-up with the New England Patriots each season to offer some special opportunities to football fans. At each home game, service members have the opportunity to sit in the “Row of Honor”, which is a sponsored, designated row of 5 seats where members from all branches enjoy the game. In addition, service members have the added thrill of running onto the field with the team prior to kick-off and standing with them while the National Anthem is performed.
