Our company is committed to bringing back the manufacturing of products that deserve to be American made, and in so doing, we create employment opportunities for Veterans and the handicapped.

Veterans4You, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business (SDVOSB), along with their American suppliers, have brought the American Flag back home.

“For too many years, companies have been selling “Made in U.S.A” 4 x 6” flags with many components that were sourced overseas,” said Timothy Farrell, President of Veterans4You. "The outsourcing of the flag staffs and other materials used to produce the American flag have put many long-standing U.S.A. wood manufacturers out of business, as well as textile plants that have never made the shiny polyester flag material manufactured in counties like China. By using foreign parts to make a simple flag, child safety was considered compromised with sharp, plastic spears that can easily break off or cause injury. Many of these American flags that were not 100 percent made in America have been used on Memorial Day and other patriotic settings."

As Timothy Farrell, President of Veterans4You states, “Our company is committed to bringing back the manufacturing of products that deserve to be American made, and in so doing, we create employment opportunities for Veterans and the handicapped. Having served with the U.S. Marine Corps in Vietnam with two Purple Hearts and with having lost my brother Dan, who was an Army medic in Vietnam, I feel strongly that the American flag is a product that deserves integrity and the same respect during manufacturing as when it is proudly displayed.”

The Department of Defense and The Department of Homeland Security require product compliancy stating that all components used, in addition to the labor to manufacture certain products, must be done in America. The Berry and Kissel Amendments also support the manufacturing requirements which “Old Glory” deserves.

A flag is made from a staff, spear or dome and material converted into Old Glory. Ink colors must match Old Glory blue and Old Glory red.
