American flag patches flown in combat honor sacrifices made
September 11 has become an important date of remembrance in the United States. The attacks suffered on that day changed the course of world history, and its effects are still being felt today.
In honor of the servicemen and servicewomen who have fought for our country in operations influenced by the September 11th attacks, Friends of NRA has created a 9/11 Flag Display which will be prominently featured at Friends of NRA banquets in 2013.
The American flag patch fixed at the top of each display is one of 1,100 flown over Iraq in an F-16 last year to honor the tenth anniversary of 9/11. These patches were then presented to the NRA for our efforts and commitment to teaching freedom as our soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines continue to protect it.
Displayed in a beautiful 17.5” W x 19.5”H cognac leather frame, the patch is distinguished with an F-16 image. Matted in a triple-layered effect with a combination of navy and pewter layering, this humbling piece includes a military brass plaque of the US military branches in order of inception: Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. Printed and framed in the USA by Mill Pond Press. Each display is signed by John A. Crone, Major, USA 310th Expeditionary Sustainment Command - Indiana's Senior NRA Field Representative.
A full article on the print will be in an upcoming issue of NRA Field Operations's free magazine, Traditions.
Thanks to organizations like the National Rifle Association and Friends of NRA, the lives lost as a result of the 9/11 attacks will not be forgotten.
