If you don’t know who Robert Stokely is, he is a Gold Star father.  His son,SGT Mike Stokely, was killed in Iraq in 2005.  Robert has stayed involved with his son’s unit.  He recently sent a request to Soldiers’ Angels.  From the letter he sent:

Today, I had a request from the guys there when I stopped by the Armory.  They asked me if I knew how to get them a State Flag from each of the 50 States.  I told them give me some time to think on it and I’d get back to them.  They want to hang the flags in their Armory.  Their reason?  They said they serve America and they have a Georgia Flag, but felt they ought to have a flag for each of the other 49 States they represent when they deploy. I’d like to go another step and add the U.S. Territories if possible and Germany, since they have had wounded come through Landstuhl that MaryAnn took care of…..

Please share about this on the blogs.  The full letter is posted on the Soldiers’ Angels site athttp://soldiersangels.org/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=667&cntnt01returnid=15.

Be sure to stress this:

To ensure no duplicates, if you can get a flag for 2/121 please contact Robert and let him know which state flag you can provide:  rrmwastokely@aol.com or  678-4161-387.

So far, I am aware of a Vermont and Virginia flag being sent.  He’s looking for the standard sizes: 2′ x 4′ or 3′ x 5′.
