Gooding High School hosts a Field of Flags campaign to benefit DAV
Gooding, ID – This Veterans Day, Gooding High School students will set up a field of American flags, all to honor local veterans and raise critical funds to support our nation’s ill and injured heroes.
Each donated flag represents a special veteran in someone’s life, with proceeds benefitting DAV (Disabled American Veterans) and their free, life-changing services for veterans in need and their families. The flags will be displayed at Gooding High School from Nov. 9- Nov. 11.
Please purchase flags by October 23, 2023. After the Field of Flags has been displayed, donors can keep the flags. Our hope is that donors will allow GHS Leadership to save them and reuse them for next year’s field to make it even bigger! However, donors are welcome to take their flag home with them and keep it as a memento.
For more than 100 years, DAV has helped veterans of all generations’ live high-quality lives with respect and dignity. Over 1 million veterans each year receive benefit assistance, meaningful employment opportunities and free transportation to VA medical appointments.
“Each flag represents a veteran and our unwavering commitment to serving all who’ve given so much for our country,” said Marc Burgess, DAV CEO and National Adjutant. “It’s an easy way to pay homage to a veteran in your life.”

DAV empowers veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. It is dedicated to a single purpose: keeping our promise to America’s veterans. DAV does this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them, fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill, providing employment resources to veterans and their families, and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life. DAV, a nonprofit organization with more than 1 million members, was founded in 1920 and chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1932. Learn more at DAV.org.
