In memorial of 9/11, the Utah Healing Field is set up in Sandy, Utah every year. This field is full of flags to honor those who gave their lives on that tragic day. This is a free event that is perfect for families to come remember those who served that day.
The Utah Healing Field has been on display since the first anniversary of 9/11. Many people have visited this memorial to remember and honor those who died in the attack. We felt a sense of reverence as we walked among the flags and talked with our children about what happened that day, and what we remember feeling as we witnessed these events.
Signs around the flags have information about the number of lives lost. We loved the honorary flags that were made bearing the names of those who had died on 9/11. There are over 3000 flags in this memorial.
This memorial is set up for a few days surrounding Patriot Day (9/11). In 2021, the Utah Healing Field will be on display from September 9-12,2022. There is parking along the street and plenty of space to spread out among the flags if you’d like to walk through the memorial. You can also view the flags by driving around the display.
Utah Healing Field is located at 10000 South Centennial Parkway in Sandy, Utah. For more information, visit their website. Another neat memorial in Utah is the Layton Vietnam War Memorial. It is a small replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC.
