Today my flag and I culminate a 1 year trip across Europe, over Oceans, across the deserts and even Across Los Angeles CA. My Flag has been the subject of radio shows and the topic of several conversations. My Flag is a being dedicated and donated to the George S. Patton Museum at Chiriaco Summit California. About a year ago I stopped at the Museum on the way to Texas to see my son and his family, we stopped I ran out of the car, posed with my flag and a picture was taken. A few days Mike Pierson called me and invited me to stop and get it flown for real on the flag pole. About a month or so late an episode of the PBS show “History Detectives “ came on and mentioned Columbus New Mexico and the 1914 raid by Poncho Villa and as a side note the start of Patton’s career in Mechanized Warfare. Also US Army Captain Colin Fulbright was stationed in Europe.
Intertwined in all this was a co-worker who mentioned that Patton’s Home Church is in San Gabriel California. Thusly the Journey Began. Today the flag is coming to a new home after flying at battle sites, gravesites, US Air Force Planes, US Army Helicopters, Church sites and state park sites. It is going to flown and retired at the Museum. I have had a lot of fun with this I now to share it with everyone
