From time to time, the employees at H&H collect items to send overseas to help meet the needs of our service men and women. In 2006, we sent such a shipment around Christmas time. In July of the following year, we received quite a surprise.
This flag came to us, along with a certificate stating that it had been flown by 1 LT Joshua D Metsker on July 4, 2007 during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He is with the 105th Engineer Group (combat), 25th Infantry Division. Along with the flag was a letter thanking us and filling us in on the custom for such a flag.
Per his suggestion, we are proud to fly this flag in place of our regular US flag to commemorate three special days: Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, and the 4th of July.
All of us at H&H hope that all of you have a safe and happy Independence Day.
