Flag Lady Gifts gives free US flags to local veterans
Flag Lady Gifts would like to send a sincere thank you to all of our local veterans. We appreciate the incredible, and usually thankless, job that they have done and are currently doing fighting for our country's safety and for our way of life.
Flag Lady Gifts is giving one FREE US flag, 3x5 or smaller, to each local veteran who comes in to the store this Friday during Veterans Day to tell us about his or her service to our country. Up to a $56 value!
Service to the United States is very close to home for us here at Flag Lady Gifts. Owner Jan Hartman grew up as an Army brat in several states, and spend several of her teen years living in the European theatre. Our Flag Shop Manager's husband served as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, NC. He has deployed three times to Iraq and Afghanistan, and currently teaches ROTC to cadets at Temple University in Philadelphia. In addition, the son of another employee is a fighter pilot.
Many of us know what it is like to have a loved one in the armed forces, but none of us here at Flag Lady Gifts has firsthand experience of boot camp, training, or holidays spent in the wet or extreme weather without family around. I don't think we can overstate how much each citizen in this country owes to each veteran. This Friday (and any day), try to buy a veteran a cup of coffee, hold the door, and most importantly, thank that person. Sincerely.
Are you a veteran? Please share any thoughts in the comments!
