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 their lives lost in service to our country.
We propose the Honor and Remember Flag
as the national emblem for that purpose.
We Honor the memory of these selfless men and women who
recently gave their lives, and Remember them each individually by name.
Please pray for these families as they begin their journey of healing through this unimaginable devastation.
