Flags for the Flagless Reignites Patriotism at Bloomfield High School in New Mexico
December 3rd, 2021 • By Flags For The Flagless
The Flags for the Flagless team was recently called into action by Retired Major and current ROTC Teacher – William Kern, at Bloomfield High School located in Bloomfield, New Mexico.
Lead by Charles Foley, the team quickly made their way to New Mexico to meet with Retired Major William Kern, who expressed his concern with the worn, faded and missing American Flags located throughout the campus. Without any delay, Charles Foley and the Flags for the Flagless team were able to reignite patriotism at Bloomfield High School once again.
Read the recent statement sent to Flags for the Flagless from Retired Major William Kern below:
When I arrived at Bloomfield High School this year, the flag on the flagpole was torn and tattered. All the flags that we had in the JROTC building were worn and faded. I found an organization online called Flags for the Flagless and spoke on the phone with Charley Foley, one of the founders about our flag situation. Flags for the Flagless (FFF) seeks out businesses, organizations, homes and schools to provide American Flags for classrooms and un-used flag poles. They also take on an educational role, providing historical facts, images and American Flag protocol information to the public. “Flags for the Flagless” plans to reach out to as many schools as possible, on both a local and national level, to ensure that American Flags will fly in their classrooms. And they will continue to hang American Flags on flag poles throughout Tucson, Arizona and the USA. Just before Thanksgiving break we received a new flag from FFF. Yesterday, members of our JROTC drill team raised our new flag for the first time.
