A Flag for a Hero

A  Flag for a Texas Hero
Waving the Flags of Texas heroes is one of the ways the Texas Hero Foundation celebrates Texas Indrependence Day. We fly Texas flags across Hood county, from the Court House to Elizabeth Crockett’s gravesite. Each flag is labeled with a name and information about each hero who is documented to be at the Alamo during the 16 days before it’s fall.
Help us Honor our Texas Heroes
Unfortunately, each year the flags get frayed, faded, and some flags are stolen. You can help by purchasing a flag to honor your favorite Texas Hero. Your name will be listed on the tag under the name of a Texas Hero. Flags are just $30 each, so give today. Please view the list of heroes below, choose your 5 favorite heroes, and enter all five names in the donation form to sponsor a flag.

 

Crockett, Travis, Seguine, Or maybe honor your very own ancestor with a flag that tells about them, where they fought and died. Imgine your family or business name listed under Bowie or Smith as hundreds of people stroll by and read the flags in Hood County in March.
