SCV Mechanized Cavalry Partners with Va Flaggers to Become Guardians of our Largest Flag Site


The Virginia Flaggers are pleased to announce a new partnership with the 8th Platoon of the 2nd Battalion, Co. A., Mechanized Cavalry, Sons of Confederate Veterans. The 8th Platoon has volunteered to serve as "Guardians of the Flag" for two of our sites in Danville, including our largest pole and flag on the 29 Bypass, the General William Lewis Cabell Memorial Battle Flag.
Not only have they been actively helping to raise and lower the flags at both sites, they solicited the help of their brothers in the 7th and 9th platoons to raise enough money to replace the worn flag  at the Cabell site with a brand new, heavy duty 31' x 51' flag over the weekend. This is a HUGE accomplishment, considering the size and cost of this flag!
Special thanks to Lt. Robert McDaniel for his leadership in making this happen, and to all of the men of Mechanized Cavalry who support us in the Commonwealth and across the South! The unparalleled success in Danville is a direct result of ALL of our heritage organizations pulling together to stand as one against our enemies. We are thankful for each and every one who gives of their time, talents, and gifts to forward the colors and advance our Cause.
If you would like to inquire about the possibility of volunteering to serve as a "Guardian of the Flag" at any of our 25 sites across Virginia, or for more information about how your organization or group may be able to assist, please contact us at info@vaflaggers.com
