For those who don't know what a Blue Star Flag is .............

The Blue Star Flag first appeared in 1917, when an Army captain who had two sons serving on the front line designed it as a tribute to
their dedication and service. The flag quickly became the unofficial symbol of a
child in the service. Today, families who have a loved one serving in the
military display a blue star flag in the inside front window of their homes to
show the family’s pride in their loved one who is serving and to remind others
that preserving America’s freedom demands much.


I am going to hang mind below a shadow box I had made with a gr uncles WW1 personal effects and letter to his mother when he died.


Check it out. Great way to honor a relative past or present.
