Back to the Beginning with the American Widow Project

Posted by on

Thanks to the unbelievable support Flags Of Valor has received since we opened our doors in 2015, we have had the opportunity to support and participate in a wide range of wonderful, powerful and truly impactful events.  On behalf of our entire team, I am incredibly grateful for each of these opportunities.  

Something truly touching happened recently.  On Friday 19 May, I spent an evening with the American Widow Project at their retreat in North Carolina.  Visiting with these incredible women, each having experienced the profound sadness of losing a spouse in service to our Nation.  

It was during our conversations that the memory of delivering our first flag two years ago came rushing back. That first delivery was to the widow of a fallen soldier.

That experience, in 2014, left a permanent mark on me.  Though the feeling from that experience has been difficult to put into words, it has not been difficult to put into action.  Replicating that specific feeling, from those 15 minutes sharing the grief of a fallen soldier's spouse, is THE reason Flags Of Valor "Gives Back".  

We, Flags of Valor, will always Give Back.  Each day, through our actions, we will continue to honor and remember all who serve and sacrifice to defend our freedom and our way of life. 

Thank you so much for your continued support of our company and our mission.

  • I literally have tears in my eyes. Thank you so much for what you do. I just finished reading about attempts to decrease VA benefits by the powers that be in Washington and then I re-read your email. You make me feel better. When I was drafted we were promised a lifetime of care through the VA and now Washington is chiseling away at those benefits. I would still stand up and serve BUT it makes me wonder.
    I don’t want to get political, so I will just close with another THANK YOU.

  • We ordered 2 flags, one for each of our Marine sons. We were blessed to have them both come back from 2 deployments to Afghanistan. Thank you for what you are doing! Keep up the good work!
    From a very proud Marine Mom!!

  • I want to send my respect and admiration for the wonderful work you are doing. The American flag hangs outside of my home and represents a love and gratitude that I have for our country. Thank you!
    I was wondering if you make a smaller wooden flag like the larger versions that are on your website?

  • What caught my interest was about the combat veterans. I’m grateful for all who served, but the one’s that saw actual combat have a special place in my heart. My Dad served during World War II on the U.S.S. Mannert
    Abel. He was turned down many times when he tried to join up because he was blind in one eye. However he wouldn’t give up trying and finally was accepted. He was very proud! His ship sunk but he survived And I was born in 1946! Yay Dad!
