Our country endures because in every generation, courageous Americans answer the call to serve in our Armed Forces. They represent the very best of the human spirit, stand tall for the values and freedoms we cherish, and uphold peace and security at home and around the globe. Today, we pay tribute to the service members who have not returned from the battlefield, we stand beside their families, and we honor those who are held captive as prisoners of war. We will never forget their sacrifice, nor will we ever abandon our responsibility to do everything in our power to bring them home.
We raise this flag as a solemn reminder of our obligation to always remember the sacrifices made to defend our Nation.

What are those banners with the star in the middle that I see in windows?
Designed in 1917, by World War One Army Captain Robert Quessner, the in service star banner is traditionally hung in the window of the home of a person who has a family member currently serving in the United States Military. That person can be a son, daughter, wife, husband, etc. The blue star represents one family member currently in service; a gold star on a banner represents a family member who was killed during service. Seeing these banners today in windows of homes reminds everyone of us that war is not something that happens overseas on far-away lands, but is something that affects every street and neighborhood in our country. Banner is 8″x15″ with crossbar and a gold cord and tassel. The service star is also available in a 3×5′ flag.
Military flags in the United States have a long and colorful history, and perform services well
beyond symbolism. Each branch of the military – Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps,
and Navy – all have distinct, individual flags, as well as a large assortment of identification
streamers and guidons. Beyond that are in-service banners and flags, as well as a special
POW/MIA flag and distinct Merchant Marine and Civilian Service flags.
Military flags are important parts of many ceremonies as well as somber events such as funerals.
Color guards often have joint displays of military flags, and there is a formal precedence of
placement. The national colors are first, followed by the flags of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy,
Air Force, and Coast Guard. The exception is any period when the Coast Guard is operating as
part of the Navy, then the Coast Guard flag precedes the Air Force flag.
The highest ranking officers in all parts of the military have personal flags denoting their rank,
thus the terms “flag officers” or “flag rank” for generals and admirals.
Through the centuries, there have also been battle flags and naval ensigns and battle ensigns.
Surprisingly, the official military flags in use today are the products of final designs in pre- and
post-World War II
