Hello, I've had a great month and have added some great flags to my collection. My most recent addition and probably my favorite is this flag from the closed Alpena,. MI chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. The nylon flag was made by Annin and is quit large, measuring 34"x 60" . The chapter was named for Sgt Roger Brilinski who was killed Feb 1991 when the helicopter he was on was hit with anti-aircraft fire and crashed while on a rescue mission. They were trying to rescue F-16 pilot William Andrews. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Jerry, I was very excited to find this flag. I just wish I had space to display it but my wife said I can't put it in the living room.
