It was a day I will never forget. After screening, what I thought was, another annoying solicitation phone call, I heard the words, "We're looking for the granddaughter of James Montgomery Flagg for a dedication in his honor at Fort Knox."
It was early spring in 2001, ironically just 3 months before 9-11, and plans were underway for a regal ceremony filled with high ranking military, honor guard, military marching band, a full fledged canon salute, and congratulatory letter from President George W. Bush. The dedication was on Flag(g) Day, June 14th, 2001 year of Our Lord. It was also the 226th birthday of the United States Army. Now the James Montgomery Flagg Memorial Field.
Remember Old Glory!
