The Flags for Fort Snelling Mission
2,700 little 3″x 5″ American flags are bought, donated, and brought to the cemetery for distribution by 15-20 patriotic Americans just looking to make a difference on Memorial Day.
10,000 regulation-size American flags are purchased and distributed throughout the main ceremony area of the cemetery on Memorial Day morning.
In our second year as an official non-profit, Flags for Fort Snelling raised enough funds to add to their flag count, increasing the 2017 count to 50,000 American flags.
2018 was the first year Minnesota honored every hero laid to rest at Fort Snelling National Cemetery with an American Flag on Memorial Day since the 1980s- nearly 200,000 American flags!
