Lone Star Rally & Post 911 Foundation present: FOLLOW THE FLAG Ride for Heroes
Friday, November 5th
Support the Flag & our Heroes! Active Military * Veterans * Police * Firefighters
The Follow the Flag campaign began at Ground Zero on September 11th, 2010 with the raising of several flags by the actual heroes of 9/11 over the fallen World Trade Center towers. These same flags have flown over several battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan and all of the major military academies. These flags will be on a tour of the United States for one year, returning it to its final resting place at the National 9/11 Museum on the 10 year anniversary of the attack. The Post 911 Foundation will proudly display the flags at a series of local events throughout the country to inspire and remind Americans of the patriotism and pride that brought the nation together after the attacks. Each event will spearhead local fundraising campaigns to support the heroic men and women who have served our country with honor and are now in need of our assistance.
Please join us for a tribute Follow the Flag Ride for Heroes down The Strand culminating at the Country Stage – Harborside at Pier 21. The Ride will be lead by a Flag from Ground Zero carried by the Galveston City Fire Department which will be on display for all to pay their respects.
