Flying Flags For Heroes

Sat, Dec 4, 2021
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join in our mission, in honoring our nation's heroes, by placing our symbol of freedom for them.

Since the first day the American flag was flown we have lost millions of Americans defending our flag and what it stands for. Remember to honor our veterans and place a flag at the grave site of service men and woman who have passed. Let’s never forget them.

The goal is 1,000,000 flags placed in the next 10 months! View The Current Count Here! 

The Sons of the American Legion, Detachment of Illinois, are proud to participate in National Commander Michael C. Fox's Special Project “Flying Flags for Heroes”.

We will be hosting Sons of The American National Vice Commander, Central Area Jeff Vrable SR. (OH) along with other dignitaries from The American Legion family that will be attending this ceremony, including our State Commander, Jeff Trout. The Honor Guard from Post 635 Normal and Post 56 in Bloomington will also be participating in the event.
