Va Flaggers: Roadside Memorial Battle Flags Update

The Virginia Flaggers are pleased to announce the installation of lighting at the Wade Hampton I-95 Memorial Battle Flag Site in Prince George County.

The flag will now be illuminated each night and will be visible 24/7.
Special thanks to Major Willie Wells and the men of the Army of Northern Virginia Mechanized Cavalry who co-sponsor this site, and installed the lighting this week.

Last weekend, flags were lowered at all 19 flag sites, ahead of sustained high winds forecast across the Commonwealth. 
By taking the time to remove the flags and get them out of harm's way, we are able to save wear and tear and be the best stewards of the resources with which we have been provided. The flags were closely inspected for any damage and swapped out for repairs as needed.  
Dozens of volunteers took time out of their day to make sure these flags are protected, and to raise them back again when the threat had passed.

We call these folks the Guardians of the Flags, and we owe them a deep debt of gratitude for their hard work and willingness to answer the call for help, often on short notice! Thank you, gentlemen, for your dedication to the Cause for which we stand!
