I've always wanted to do that. I've seen videos of those flags being continually raised and lowered. Is there a long waiting list?

I must say, I've always admired Americans patriotism. This is really cool. You probably could've gone to your local Walmart and purchased a flag, but instead you chose this route. Congrats on your new flag.

I have one from my Aunt who served in the WAC in WWII. On display indoors, never flown. My brother has my Dad's.

I just can't buy a Chinese made US Flag from the Great Wal of Mart. This one was $32, including shipping.

Got it through my US Rep.

I plan to get a Texas flag flown over the State Capitol and hang them both in my office at work. With the certificates framed.

I still have the US flag that Bobby flew over Iraq. I am not sure but I think it was actually over Bagdad.

After going through three Chinese setups, picked up a outrigger setup from http://w.w.w.americanflagstore.com/ 2 inch in diameter aluminum pole, cast aluminum mount. Still flying the same flag for 3 years now, starting to get slightly faded by the sun, but all made in the USA.

Didn't get flown over the capitol or anything important. :/ Toss up the Gadsden flag ever now and then to keep the neighborhood in check however.

Last Full Moon.

Rush told of the flag he was presented with that was signed by the aircrews of a number of planes that carried it into combat during the Gulf War.
We Dittoheads were touched by the story and how he was touched by the gesture.

It isn't where it was made, it's what our flag represents.

You realize you actually "replied" to a thread?  Smile
