Braille American Flag Monument

Unveiling

 

 

Hightower Trail Chapter, NSDAR andCherokee Rose Society, G.S.S.C.A.R. would like to invite its C.A.R. family, friends and guests to attend the unveiling of the Braille American Flag monument ceremony. The event will take place on Saturday, October 10, from 11 a.m. to 12 noon, located at the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton, Georgia. 

 

The Braille American Flag is a bronze plaque of the American flag with braille language along the stars and stripes. It also contains The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag in braille. 

 

This is the second National Cemetery to receive a Braille American Flag within the United States, and the first to have it mounted as a monument. Arlington Cemetery, located in WDC, received the first one, and it can be found hung on the wall in the Visitor Center. 

 

Veterans as well as young service men and women suffer from eye injuries and premature blindness. Donating a Braille Flag is our way to give back to those who are and have served our country.
