Patriot Place guests and members of the community had the opportunity to submit the names of their fallen heroes, and these names are displayed throughout the flag garden with each flag planted in remembrance of one submitted name.
During the ceremony Friday, May 28 at 11 a.m., Foxborough Veteran Services Officer Ally Rodriguez and Vice President and General Manager of Patriot Place Brian Earley will lay a wreath in memory of servicemen and women who have been lost in the line of duty. The ceremony will take place at the dedicated flag garden planted in the plaza adjacent to Red Robin overlooking Gillette Stadium, and will be on display through Monday, May 31. A member of the State Honor Guard will also be on duty to guard the site each day.
