National POW/MIA Recognition Day is September 21, 2018. On this day we not only fly the U.S. flag, we also fly the POW/MIA flag to honor and remember those heroes who were killed or have gone missing in action during wartime. Fly your POW/MIA flag alone or underneath a larger U.S. flag on the same staff for a meaningful display of recognition on POW recognition day.Read More

On this 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, there are so many ways to honor and remember the victims of 9/11. Most notably is to visit the 9/11 memorial and museum in New York City, NY, or travel to Shanksville, PA or Washington, D.C. to pay your respects at one of the national 9/11 memorial sites. Another way to honor the fallen victims of 9/11 is by participating in a day of service, or in one of the many events taking place across American communities, large and small.Read More

September 11, 2001, will always be a date which will live in infamy. And each September since that day, we lower the American flag to half-staff to honor the heroes who risked and lost their lives as well as to reflect on the many lessons we’ve learned from the tragedy. Patriot Day is also a time for us to remember the true spirit of America in defiance and global unity against terrorism around the world.
