'Honor' Flags Bring Fresh Meaning to Veterans Day

Ad Feedback

One man's 50-state odyssey to honor America's fallen soldiers, including his son, wrapped up at Arlington National Cemetery, Thursday.

For Veterans Day, George Lutz placed more than 11,000 of his "Honor and Remember" flags by soldiers' tombstones in tribute to the nation's fallen servicemen and women.

Five years ago, the death of Lutz's son in Iraq inspired him to design the patriotic flag.

"He was in Fallujah, Iraq, when he was killed. He was killed by a sniper's bullet," Lutz said of his son. "Very smart, gregarious man, athletic, loved what he was doing, loved his country, loved the mission, and loved his God."

"A strong man of faith, and I lost my best friend that day," Lutz recalled. "It was a tough, tough day."

George Lutz spoke with CBN News about his 'Honor and Remember' mission. Click here for the full interview.

Lutz recently completed a cross country trek to gain support for the adoption of the flag in all 50 states. Still, he told CBN News his mission is not yet completed.

"There are still lives to be touched and people to be reached and that will be the continuation of the mission and I'll do that the rest of my life," he said

Lutz is asking every state to adopt the "Honor and Remember" flag as a special way to memorialize the nation's fallen troops.
