   The Field of Heroes is a one of a kind tribute to every service member who has died in Iraq or Afghanistan since the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom (now Operation New Dawn) and Operation Enduring Freedom.

As of mmmm dd yyyy, 4,409 service men and women have given their lives in Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2,167 service members have died in Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan), and 66 have been lost in Operation New Dawn (Iraq).

   On Memorial Day weekend, the soccer fields at Century High School in Pocatello, Idaho will be transformed into a temporary memorial in the spirit of famous national cemeteries such as Arlington National Cemetery which is located in Washington DC. Each wooden marker is handmade, painted white and affixed with the name, rank and the date of death of an American Service Member who paid the ultimate price in the name of freedom. The markers are then carefully spaced and placed into the ground. Once the field has been constructed it is then dedicated as hallowed ground and opened to the public for those who wish to come and pay their respects.
