These flags are posted on designated days throughout the year to show our community's resolve to remember those who have served and sacrificed in our nation's military. The Sweet Home VFW is in need of donations to purchase and maintain the flags and the flag pole holes.

You, and the Community are invited to a presentation of these pins by the Sweet Home VFW POST 3437 and members of the Northwest Scots Guard, Who will be presenting these pins at the VFW post on February 18, 2023 at 1pm., to show our appreciation for your duty and sacrifice.
