The Virginia Flaggers are pleased to announce a new partnership with the 8th Platoon of the 2nd Battalion, Co. A., Mechanized Cavalry, Sons of Confederate Veterans. The 8th Platoon has volunteered to serve as "Guardians of the Flag" for two of our sites in Danville, including our largest pole and flag on the 29 Bypass, the General William Lewis Cabell Memorial Battle Flag.
Not only have they been actively helping to raise and lower the flags at both sites, they solicited the help of their brothers in the 7th and 9th platoons to raise enough money to replace the worn flag at the Cabell site with a brand new, heavy duty 31' x 51' flag over the weekend. This is a HUGE accomplishment, considering the size and cost of this flag!
