A Flag for a Texas Hero

  • Dates: April 18, 2020 - May 17, 2020
  • Recurrence: Recurring daily


Help us Honor our Texas Heroes

Waving the Flags of Texas heroes is one of the ways the Texas Heroes Foundation celebrates Texas Independence. We fly Texas flags across Hood County, from the Court House to Elizabeth Crockett’s gravesite at the Acton Cemetery. Each flag is labeled with a name and information about each hero who is documented to have served in the Battle of the Alamo or any veteran of the Texas Revolutionary War.

Unfortunately, each year the flags get frayed, faded, and some flags are stolen. You can help by sponsoring a flag to honor your favorite Texas Hero. Your name will be listed on the tag under the name of a Texas Hero. Flags are just $30 each, so give today. Please view the list of heroes on the website, choose your three favorite heroes, first choice to third choice, and enter all three names in the form to sponsor a flag.

Flags will be displayed from mid April until after the Stroll through Texas History, May 16, 2020.
