Yesterday it was announced that the state of Virginia is the first state to adopt the Honor and Remember Flag. The flag will be the official remembrance flag flown proudly throughout the state.
- We are all familiar with the POW flag from the VietNam era. While we honor our nations heroes on Memorial Day, we have not adopted a symbol to represent their service and sacrifice.
The Honor and Remember flag grew from a grass roots effort of one military family whose son was killed in Iraq.
The flag is designed to honor those who served in all US wars.
The movement to have this flag adopted as a national symbol started more than a year ago. Virginia is the first state to pass legislation.
There is currently a house bill H.R. 1034 to make this flag our national symbol of service.
