The flag site exits because of the vision and dedication of prior Committees with the generosity of the citizens of Somerset County, PA.
The current Committee is committed to the long-term maintenance of the flag site,
which is dedicated to all Somerset County veterans and to the flag pole which is dedicated to the Flight 93 heroes
If successful, our work will never be finished.

Trial program to keep a flag flying

Snow Flag Pic 2 January 24, 2017

Our first pictures of the site with a flag flying in the snow.

Support of the small flag program is going well. The flag has been up since November 17, 2016 and
very little damage. Donations have been received from the following veteran's groups:
Somerset, Rockwood and Stoystown American Legion posts.

Our large flag was lowered for the winter.
The committee voted to run a trial program to fly a smaller flag during the winter months.
     We know:
          The winter months are extremely damaging to the large flags.
          They require 4 to 6 guys to raise and lower.
          The large flags are expensive to replace and repair.
          We all miss the flag when it is down.

On November 17, 2016, we raised a 12 foot by 18 foot nylon flag.
     It will be easier to lower and raise if we have enough notice of high winds and/or ice.
     One person can lower and raise the flag, if necessary - two preferred.
     Replacement and repairs will be more affordable.
     We hope this will allow us to keep a flag flying all year.
