Group Presents Families with Flags for Fallen Soldiers

A tour remembering those who died serving our country with a special flag was in Rochester to honor two fallen soldiers.
“Honor and Remember” is an organization aiming to promote a new national symbol honoring all those who died in military service.

The group presented its flag to two area families before Wednesday’s Red Wings game.

One was for Gerald Wilson, who died when his helicopter was shot down in Vietnam. The second was for Staff Sergeant Nekl Allen, who died last year in Wardak Province, Afghanistan.

“Honor and Remember” hopes a bill in Congress will pass, making its flag a national symbol.
