Va Flaggers: Roadside Battle Flag Raised in TEXAS!

Last December, I had the pleasure and honor of visiting Temple, TX to speak with the Major Robert M. White Camp #1250.

The friendships formed during that trip continue to this day, and the mutual respect has grown over the past year.  Camp #1250 continues to be one of our best and most generous supporters.

Earlier this month, we received word that the camp had placed a flag pole on SH95 in Holland, TX, but were waiting on a flag, which had been on back order for some time.


We checked our inventory, found that we had what they needed and immediately shipped them a 10' x 15' Battle Flag. We were thrilled to receive this message a few days later...
"Ladies and gentlemen, our friends at the Va. Flaggers have procured a new 10x15 battle flag for us! I plan to raise it Sat. Dec. 19th at 10AM on my 42ft pole on SH95, top of the hill, 1mile south of the flashing light in Holland. You are all invited to join me and my family for this memorial, and to thank the Flaggers for their assistance!"

Yesterday, we were excited to be a part of the ceremony, as we received photos and updates of the flag raising via text, and wanted to share them with all of you. 


What a beautiful sight...and we are a little jealous of the wide open spaces and Texas wind that will keep her flying high! 


Congratulations to the men of the Major Robert M. White Camp...and thank you all for your support!

"For every flag removed, a thousand more will rise to take its place..." 

The compatriots of Camp #1250 told us they expect this to be the first of many more to come.
