Because of the nearly 1,000 volunteers we had helping over Memorial Weekend, we
were able to place a flag at every headstone at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.

Legacy Flag Fundraiser:

A permanent collection for Fort Snelling National Cemetery

A permanent collection of the new retractable flags made to endure the weather, handling and storage is what will root the ability for this tradition to happen Memorial Day after Memorial Day for generations to come. If we do not reach our fundraising goals, the current flags all eventually get destroyed, and the volunteers won’t have the flags to place some Memorial Day in the near future.
So remind your online friends, family, schools, companies, organizations, VFWs and Legions of the FFFS Mission. Thank you for your continued support from our Forever Americans!

Love the purpose and all it stands for. The day one decides to sacrifice their freedom to protect another is the day that individual is forever in my heart. Thank you to all past, present and future soldiers and their families.

In honor of our Dad, Ronal T. Rassel who passed on Aug. 28, 2018 we are honored to pass on the memorial donations that we given to our family in his memory.

We placed flags Sat morning & were so impressed by the way this was run & set up. Everything ran so smoothly! Thank you to everyone involved, it was an honor to be a part of it. We would definitely make this an annual event with our family.

I’ve asked for a flag to be placed on my cousin’s grave for Memorial Day! Thank you for doing this and God Bless you.
Thomas (Tommy) Shannon was my cousin. He had a great sense of humor and was always so much fun! The last time I saw him before he deployed, he took us younger kids to get an ice cream cone. It was a hot day and as he was driving, his ice cream was melting down his arm. He threw the cone out the car window and his dog followed it out the window. The dog was unhurt, just lapping up the ice cream. We all were rolling on the ground laughing! It never occurred to me that I would never see him again.
He died defending a hill in Viet Nam. He was only 22 years old!

Can’t say in words how much this project means to me.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity another year for placing flags. This year I placed one for my grandfather and grandparents along with others who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Ft Snelling is a sacred place full of men and women we can never truly thank enough. Driving through the gates today and seeing all of the flags was breath stopping. Thank you!

Thank you to the Veteran who while placing a flag at my Grandfather’s grave, also put a shiny penny atop his gravestone (and so many others). Thank you for your service and for volunteering at Fort Snelling.

This group…..these amazing people….. there are no words to express the feeling of pride, love, honor and thankfulness when you go into fort Snelling and see a flag one every site! To know that there are people willing to show this much respect and give this much time to families they have never met is heart warming. I say a huge thank you to every volunteer and every person that is part of this group. You will never know the importance of what you do and how much it means to so many!

Combat Veterans MN , as a group we were honored to assist in placing Flags on the graves of our fallen brothers and sisters!

I received my email/photo this morning. Thank you so much to everyone who donated their time and money for this special project. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
