Thirteen Folds on the Flag

The flag in the United States Armed Forces symbolizes honor and respect for veterans who have served. It is draped over the casket at the funeral, then folded and kept under watch throughout the night.  In the morning,  it is flown high as a symbol of belief in the resurrection of the body.   

Use this printable to teach your staff, students or employees about folding this important symbol of our country and the sacrifices so many have made on our behalf to defend our freedom.  

WW1 - Yankee Division

In collaboration with Dr. Heather Warfield, PhD, the premier of her research on the historical pilgrimages to the Western Front of WWI, this virtual pilgrimage website is intended to connect visitors with sites that were meaningful to the Yankee Division during, and after, their service in France. This virtual tour is an ongoing collaboration amongst all those interested in the memory of the soldiers, their family stories, the places from which they originated, and the historical and cultural contexts of WWI.
