Flags For Fallen Military (the program) was formed in the summer of 2006. The idea and development of the program was to honor our fallen heroes by providing families the option of placing an American flag in honor of their son or daughter’s sacrifice.
The entire program was developed and initially operated and run solely by the Larson family. David C. Larson serves at the founder and President. While David did not serve in the military, he was raised in a military family and felt compelled to do something, so the dream was penciled out. Several wonderful suppliers and donors have made this dream come true. Many families have received a flag from the program. The rewards of running this program are endless; the Larson’s and other volunteers have met and continue to meet wonderful people and families.
The program has additional placements arranged. To date any family whose heroes have perished may received the formal flag offering letter. This is the only contact with the families; it is up to the family to contact the program if they wish for a flag and pole in memory of their lost son, daughter or family member. The placement of the flag pole,
size and timing are determined by the families.
This is a VERY rewarding program, with several people
donating their time. The Larson’s are committed to continuing the program until all families, which choose to be recognized, receive their commemorative flag and honor their heroes. Truly there is no-end to the program; the flags will continue to be placed as long as there are requests from the families.
Fund raising efforts have been focused on USA based
businesses and personal donations from friends, family and the general public.
