Yes...the one may have been related to some (Funks) around here.

 

I picked this up in Wisconsin about 10 years aqo as a friend wanted a flag.Got it home and it wasn't what he thought.Never noticed the Iowa names till I opened it up for a better look.I recall the seller was out of the Milwaukee or possibly Chicago area

Nice signed flag. I recently picked up a signed flag and I was able to research each signer...Recon Unit from the 78th ID...1st over Rhine river at Remagen Bridge

Great flag and great to put a face with a name. I have a large flag/banner (maybe 4 feet X 12 feet) but no names. I'd guess it hung outside a building or on the wall of a meeting place. It's just neat to have something that was there.
