Pisgah High hosts Armed Services appreciation night
The Pisgah ROTC and Pisgah Football are teaming up for Armed Forces appreciation night at the first Pisgah home football game against Enka High School Friday, Aug. 30. Pisgah’s awarding-winning ROTC drill team will perform at halftime.
There will be military vehicles as well as a large American flag that was shipped from Omaha, Nebraska which will be carried across the field at the beginning of the game. The flag delivery was set up by Matt Wells of Clyde and Woodmen of the World, the second largest purveyor of the United States flags in this country, second only to the United States government.
The traveling flag is 50 feet by 100 feet and has been displayed in a 9/11 ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylania, where 40 courageous passengers overcame United Airlines Flight 93 during the September 11th attacks.
The flag has also been used for an event at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
Come and support our troops, the Pisgah ROTC and the Pisgah football team this Friday.
