Flags for Vets, Inc.

Flags for Vets was formed on 2017 to honor our Nation’s veterans for their faithful service.

Last week I got a call from a local family that needed their flagpole repaired due to a recent storm. We’d honored them with this flagpole and flag last year.

When I arrived today to assess and repair I found the current flagpole lying on the driveway with the flag still attached. It had tire tracks on it from being parked on at least once.

I can’t tell you how hard it was to keep my composure and not just recover the flag and drive off.

Folks IF this happens, please have the common courtesy and respect to retire the flag and not just leave it on the pole.

Against my better judgement I did as I said I would and even replaced the flag with a new one.

I offer this example for those who may not understand how important this flag is to us and what it means.

Please don't tell me if I'm wrong, but I prefer to believe that the individual was searly disabled and unable to remove the flag. Otherwise, that'd be just like you were not able to maintain composure

Hot off the press. It’s been awhile since we’ve had koozies in stock but here they are. I’ll have them with me so if anyone wants one or more let me know.

As always, donations are welcome.

I can never thank you enough for what you did for 2 Vets who just can’t believe that a stranger cared enough for them to be made to feel special. Bless you both and thank you.

“This is truly an embodiment of how committed veterans are to service as they themselves are often the ones planting the flags for others.  An inspiration for all of us on how we should give our own skills and treasures to benefit the greater needs of others.”
