Last year on Veteran’s Day my mother and I went to see the flags at the 3rd Annual “Field of Honor” hosted by the Amvets and the Dennis Chamber of Commerce. There were over 350 flags on display as a tribute to our serving military, veterans, first responders and community heroes.
This year my mother and I went to Brewster to attend a ceremony to honor veterans.

I was still very interested in the “Field of Honor” and when I checked on line for it I noticed that the Colonial Flag Foundation was offering commemorative coins for the 15th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2011 for sale. The Colonial Flag Foundation develops and implements programs to promote patriotism, a sense of civic duty and honor for those who serve our country. Their programs encourage volunteerism and unity, generate awareness and raise funds for a wide array of issues in support of civic, service and other nonprofit organizations, and create an environment that helps to heal, honor, celebrate and educate.
We ordered the coin that is in honor of the K9 heroes. It is even more special to us as it features our two favorite breeds.
