Friends of the Flag Seek Honorary Veterans for Annual Flag Ride

Friends of the Flag photoBROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – Friends of the Flag will hold its 20th Annual Flag Ride later this year, and this year they are using community participation for selecting the honorary veteran(s) to be recognized.

To nominate a veteran, here are the rules:

1. Write a two or three paragraph letter about why this person should be selected.
2. Include nominee’s name, Branch of service, years of service (19xx-19xx), and any notable attributes.
3. All entries must be postmarked no later than January 31.

An independent committee will review entries and narrow it down to a few.

Entries should be mailed to:

Friends of the Flag
P.O.Box 254
Brookville, Pa., 15825

Honorees will participate in the flag folding, keeping that flag with a regular flag holding box, and will receive a plaque recognizing their service to the country and our respect.

Friends of the Flag is a not-for-profit organization that conducts an annual ride to raise needed funds for local causes, with priority placed on veterans.
