ASTRA sends "pocket" flags to U.S. Troops

During the January ASTRA meeting, the girls completed a Pocket Flag Project. The goal of the Pocket Flag Project is to get as many pocket flags as possible into the pockets of our military personnel on the front lines. At the meeting, small American flags were properly folded into the traditional triangle. Along with the flag, the following message was included:
“A flag for your pocket so you can always carry a little piece of home. We are praying for you and we are proud of you. Thank you for defending our country and our freedom." 
The girls also included a personal note to the soldiers.

Over 300 flags were folded. The ASTRA girls flocked the Montrose Armory to kick off their flamingo flocking season. At the flocking, the girls presented the flags to the leadership of  the Montrose Armory as they are planning deployment within the next 6 to 9 months. The honor guard gave us a very informative presentation about their daily duties.

ASTRA would like to thank Robb Ruyle of Powderhorn Industries for cutting the flags to the proper sizing.
