arabiancowboy, Thank you deeply for your service and the offer. I think sns3guppy has me covered on this one. We are so blessed for our warriors and our country. I could not think of any greater honor to this man than to provide him a combat mission flown flag. He’s going to be 87 this July 1st and I can’t wait for him to receive this package. This will be so meaningful. An old combat veteran being recognized by his younger, active duty compatriots. I just got off the phone with one of his sons and he’s blown away with what will soon transpire. We were both pretty choked up talking about it. Thanks to all who responded to this special request. I am deeply humbled and thankful for the offers. Thank-you all!
Tanner, I don't see the email. I sent a second email, along with a number. You can call or text as is convenient. Time doesn't matter. I'm half way to deaf, so if I don't answer a call, leave a message or text, whatever is easiest.

Weird. I responded at 5:56pm. I just resent at 9:37pm. If you don’t see it now, I’ll call. Check your Spam folder?
Originally posted by sns3guppy: I just spoke with my son who is stateside with an injury. His unit is deployed and working locations west of a large unstable area in an unstable region downrange. They do flag flights, and he thinks he can probably get a flag off one of the missions that was flown. Email me for details.
I know these can be popular and this is kind of a one-off offer to the original poster, rather than an open invitation to everyone, as I can't prevail on the unit to be doing this regularly. I'm sure others would like the same thing, but please understand that this is an answer to a request in this thread, and I'm unable to do repeats right now.
