George Lutz, Gold Star father and founder of Honor and Remember, was in New Hampshire on June 16th and made two presentations of the personalized flags to a Vietnam and Iraq Gold Star family.  I have attached the pictures from this presentation and also of Mrs. Pettis a Vietnam Gold Star Mother from Vermont.

We look forward to the opportunity to share George's vision of Honor and Remember and  for New Hampshire to be instrumental in helping the Honor and Remember Flag be a national symbol of service and gratitude.  Currently US H.R.1034 represents that goal.  Virginia, Oklahoma and New York have

And we send our Young to fight
We’ll have Those who are Missing
And the POWs plight.
All People of this Nation

To bring every One home
And do all we can to find
All those POW/MIAs
And leave NO Souls behind.
