about flags for the fallen

our mission

Flags For Fallen Military (FFM) was formed in the summer of 2006. The idea and development of FFM was to honor our fallen heroes by providing families the option of placing an American Flag in honor of their son’s or daughter’s sacrifice.

FFM was developed and initially operated and run solely by the Larson Family. David C. Larson is Founder, Executive Director. While David did not serve in the military, he was raised in a military family and felt compelled to do something, so the dream was penciled out. Several wonderful suppliers and donors have made this dream come true. Many families have received a flag from FFM. The rewards of running FFM are endless; the Larson’s and other volunteers have met and continue to meet wonderful people and families.

FFM has additional placements arranged. To date any family whose hero has perished may receive the formal flag offering letter. This is the only contact with the families; it is up to the family to contact the program if they wish for a flag and flagpole in memory of their deceased son, daughter or family member. The placement of the flagpole, size and timing are determined by the families.

FFM is a VERY rewarding program, with many people donating their time. The Larson’s are committed to continuing FFM until all families, who choose to be recognized, receive their commemorative flags to honor their fallen heroes. Truly there is no-end to Flags For Fallen Military; Flags will continue to be placed as long as there are requests from the families.

Fund raising efforts have been focused on USA based businesses, foundations and personal donations from friends, family and the general public.
