Va Flaggers VMFA Update 5-1-2014

Like it has been for many of you, April has been an INCREDIBLY busy month for the Va Flaggers.  In spite of attending numerous Memorial Service and Confederate History and Heritage Month activities, the Va Flaggers actually STEPPED UP our flaggings at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, flagging THREE times a week in most of the weeks in April.

The milder weather has brought out plenty of foot traffic and lots of new opportunities to educate residents, tourists, and museum visitors.

One of the highlights this month was a special visitor, who traveled all the way from Scotland to visit WBTS sites in Virginia, and took time out of his trip to make his way to the Boulevard to stand with us!  Thank you, Ron! It was an honor and a real pleasure to have you join us.

We are grateful for the continued support of folks from Richmond, Virginia, across the South, and around the globe!

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts desecrated the Confederate Memorial Chapel and dishonored AMERICAN Veterans when it forced the removal of Confederate Battle Flags from the portico of the Chapel.  Are you MAD enough yet?

The Virginia Flaggers speak for those who have no voice, and stand for the Confederate Veterans who lived and died on the grounds of the Old Soldiers home. JOIN US TODAY, Thursday, May 1st 3:00 p.m . - DUSK as we continue or vigil, forward the colors, and change hearts and minds in the Capital of the Confederacy.

If you can't be there, please support the troops on the ground, by calling or emailing museum officials and let them know that there are folks who have not and will not forget what they have done! This week, we are asking you to contact Stephen Bonadies, by email at, or by phone at (804) 340-1400.  Ask him to return the flags to the Confederate Memorial Chapel, and restore the honor to our Confederate Veterans.

RETURN the flags!
RESTORE the honor!
