Well-Worn Flag Stars Honor Troops

KSAL StaffJanuary 1, 2014

Two Kansas women are using well-worn American flags to honor U.S. troops and veterans.

Alicia Gordon and Anne Newkold, both from the Wichita area, take part in a national project called Stars for Our Troops. It involves carefully removing embroidered stars from the flags. The women then put the stars in small bags and give them away, along with a note.

It reads: “I am part of our American flag that has flown over a home in the U.S.A. I can no longer fly. In the sun and wind, I have become tattered and torn but not forgotten. Please carry me as a reminder that you are NOT forgotten.”

Newkold says the effort is a way to say “thank you.”
