Did you know the armistice ending WW I was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month? It happened in 1918 and it was pretty remarkable. And now, to honor America's veterans in modern times, a wreath-laying ceremony is held every year at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery on November 11th at 11:00 a.m.
Currently, there are 18.2 million veterans in the United States. To each of you, we say
THANK YOU. Two simple words that are not said enough and cannot express the depth of our appreciation to you and your families. We want to thank you and recognize your sacrifices.
Honor your veteran with an American flag. We also have Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Army, Merchant Marine, Korean War veteran, Vietnam War veteran, and POW/MIA flags. If you'd prefer a windsock, we carry those in most branches of the military, too. Looking for a more specific flag with a division, battalion, battle, war, or platoon logo? We can design and make it for you in-house.
At Elmer's Flag and Banner, every veteran gets a discount every day. And we honor them further by only selling American-made flags. This holiday season, consider buying locally. When you spend your money at locally owned businesses, you keep the bulk of your dollars in the area which benefits the veterans, and everyone, in your community. Over many years we've tailored our business to the needs of our community and since 1963 have been Portland's #1 flag and banner store because of our loyal customers.
