Warrior's Weekend Field of Honor Schedule
• The Field of Honor will end with taps at 9 p.m. June 9.
• Sponsors who wish to pick up their flags may do so 5-7 p.m. June 10 and 11.
• Volunteers can assist with cleanup at 5 p.m. June 12.
The Warrior's Weekend Field of Honor dates of operation have been extended to June 9.
Originally set to end June 2, Col. Michael Petrash, organizer of the event, said they extended the dates of the field because of the outpouring of support from the community. He said they posted 2,650 flags before running out of room at the corner of Mockingbird Lane and Sam Houston Drive.
Petrash said between running out of flags initially and hundreds of people buying flags late, extending the dates of the field allow the flags to fly longer.
"The Lord has answered every prayer we have had this year, with increases in sponsorships, increases in volunteers, beautiful weather - it has been a very blessed 2013 for the field of honor," Petrash said.
Petrash also said they have not recovered the presumed stolen flags, which were discovered missing Tuesday.
He said they are still praying someone returns them.
