Women Resew Historic WWII battle flag
“When I asked them I asked don’t any of y’all know how to sew?” The Navy ROTC asked the Daughter of The American Revolution to give new life to a historic flag. The flag which had seen active duty during Pearl Harbor and WWII will permanently be on display at the Navel ROTC Headquarters at Tulane University. The whole thing would not be possible without the Daughters of the American Revolution.
It took five chapters of Daughters to reinforce the large flag and over a week but the group is proud to be a part of this flags history.
The flag was flown aboard the USS New Orleans because of a New Orleans native who sponsored the ship’s commission.
The women say they can’t wait to feel the honor of seeing it displayed.
