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.

Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall 2021
Wickham Park, Melbourne, FL
The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall is a 3/5 scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC. It stands six feet tall at the center and covers almost 300 feet from end to end
This Traveling Memorial stands as a reminder of the great sacrifices made during the Vietnam War. It was made for the purpose of helping heal and rekindle friendships and to allow people the opportunity to visit loved ones in their home town who otherwise may not be able to make the trip to Washington.

DAR DAY OF SERVICE
All present chapter members participated in our DAR Day of Service by putting together 40 Personal Hygiene Bags for the Serene Harbor ladies who sometimes literally come to the shelter with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
They also put together youth bags as some children leave with their mothers. Once the bags were filled with donated items from our chapter members the bags went directly to Serene Harbor Shelter.
Thank you, Connie Wetzel, for making the attractive DAR Day of Service cloth bags
