CJB Patriot Ancestor Flags and Veteran Honor Flags proudly wave at historic Ryckman House
Our Flag of the United States Chair, Dayle Hinman, reminds us of a flag fact: “We proudly fly our Patriot Ancestor Flags and Veteran Honor Flags at historic Ryckman House for the 17 Flag Holidays we recognize each year.”
Every DAR daughter in our Commodore John Barry Chapter has a Patriot Ancestor Flag in remembrance of their Revolutionary War ancestor. It bears a tag with the member’s name, patriot’s name, state and rank. Each flag pole has a red, white and blue ribbon at the top. Veteran Honor Flags may be requested by a member to honor a veteran relative or friend, living or deceased, for service to our country. The tag contains the name, rank, branch of service and may also state the war(s) in which they fought.
Recognized Flag Holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Presidents’ Day, Last Naval Battle of the Revolutionary War Day, Revolutionary War Begins Day, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day through Independence Day, Revolutionary War Ends Day, Labor Day, Patriot’s Day Remembering 9/11 Day, POW/MIA Recognition Day, Constitution Week, Columbus Day, Election Day, Veterans Day, and Pearl Harbor Day.
