To Establish a Tangible National Symbol of Gratitude
as a Visible Public Reminder to all Americans;
Perpetually Recognizing the Sacrifice of
Our Military Fallen Heroes and Their Families.
In the more than 200 years of our nation’s history there has never been
an officially designated symbol that reminds us specifically of the sacrifice
made by members of our military and the lives lost in service to our country.
We propose the Honor and Remember Flag
as the national emblem for that purpose.
We would like to Honor the memory of these men and women who lost their lives last month, and Remember them each specifically by name. Please pray for these families as they begin their journey of healing through this unimaginable devastation.
