“The Town of Hoosick Falls Tribute Flag Program is dedicated to flying their 6′ x 9′ casket flag over every cemetery where a son of Hoosick Falls lay buried. This Tribute Flag began its journey having been flown for 24 hrs. over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. Seven National Cemeteries throughout Europe have committed to honoring the town’s request to fly this flag for 24 hrs. at their cemeteries where over 66 WWI and WWII Hoosick Falls veterans lay buried. The flag has already flown over a cemetery in Sicily. The flag is currently back in the United States and in conversation with the Tribute Flag Program organizers the Patriot Guard Riders have committed our resources to see that this Tribute Flag is flown over the 17 Civil War Battlefield cemeteries where 25 sons of Hoosick Falls lay in eternal rest.”.
