This past summer, a flag fund was designated by the VFW Ladies Auxiliary in an effort to ensure that every pole in Sistersville had a flag on it for Veterans Day and all future flag holidays.
The community responded with characteristic enthusiasm to support the project. In honor of Veteran's Day, the newly purchased flags were hung in honor of local veterans and veterans worldwide. Those who contributed are as follows.
