I have not received the flag yet. I was sent an email asking for a review but I have not received the flag yet. I have emailed but no reply yet from Pacific Historic Parks Bookstore. Looking forward to hearing from them or getting a USPS tracking update.
I gave this to my husband for our anniversary. He just loved it. We were married in Hawaii and brought back special memories. Aloha
Nice shirt. Too bad you were out of stock on the long sleeve t shirt to match. Would have purchased that too.
A shipping label was issued on May 23 but my flag has not yet shipped. I have ordered several flags over the years and this has never been an issue.
When I receive my flag ordered May 2023, I’ll do a review.
Great product. It's a nice way to show your patriotism and help the Park services. You receive a real nice certificate and you can display that as you fly 'Old Glory" This will be my second 4/6 flag. Before I installed my flat pole you ordered the 3/x5. You certificate can be in Memory or to Honor someone.
Patches are beautiful. I've been there and these are wonderful reminders of these islands.
It's really good. The quality and especially the detail is really good. Looks great on my shelf.
Hat was great. But I have a problem. I would select items and they are show in stock then I would get an email that some items were not available and shipping cost would not change. Go to check out to pay and it would show shipping cost $10 for less than $70 but then it would change to $20. That has happened on 2-3 occasions. Other than that I will trying with other items. Thanks
Father’s Day 2007 came and went,
And no call’s and no cards from either of my boys.
However, I wasn’t upset since both were in a combat zone. They had other priorities, and a note to the “Old Man” wasn’t at the top of their list. Not when life and death choices are being made.
On Monday, I got an E-Card from the younger son with an apology for being late. On Tuesday, my older son e-mailed me to tell me there was a shipping problem with the gift he had sent me and to be patient, since it was coming from the other side of the world.
A few weeks later, a box came in the mail with the return address and the customs form from Iraq stated: “Flag.” When I saw that, I thought he had sent me an Iraqi flag which would be unique, but upon opening the box, I found a United States flag perfectly folded into a triangle with only the blue and stars showing, as protocol dictates. At that point, my thoughts were it was nice to have a “Spare” stars and stripes to use at some point when mine was beyond serviceable.
Then I read the attached card. “This flag was flown at ‘Camp Ramadi’ on June 17th 2007. I thought you might enjoy it.” I realized it would never be a “spare” flag because I would never unfurl it again. I put it in a display case and proudly hung up in my hobby room, straight across from the door for all to see.
Through the years, I was always on the lookout for a special gift for him, but nothing ever seemed right until one day I found a website for the renowned ship “USS Arizona.” It’s a battleship that sank during the Japanese attack on the naval base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. We lost over 1,170 crewmen in the attack on that ship. On one page, you can order a flag flown over the memorial for some of the most popular holidays like “Memorial Day,” “Veterans Day,” “Thanksgiving,” “Pearl Harbor Day,” or whatever holiday or special day for the recipient that you prefer.
I picked out the size of flag that would suit the situation and the short dedication I wanted on the Certificate of Authentication. I chose his birthday of this year as the date. And like he did to me, I e-mailed him to say there was a “shipping problem” with his birthday gift and to be patient. It was on the way!
It took longer than I expected for him to receive it, but when he did, he called me right away. I knew who it was from the caller id on my phone, but no one on the other end of the line was talking. It took me a moment to realize he was there, but couldn’t speak from the emotions he was feeling. When I heard the ragged breathing and use of Kleenexes on his eyes, it affected me the same way.
For a couple of minutes, it was just two wary warriors, quietly connected over the phone and enjoying the other’s company

I am very sorry that Sadako Sasaki lost her life due to radiation poisoning from the bomb. It is tragically sad that the leaders of Japan chose to start a war with the United States and with other countries. The Japanese military were horribly cruel to the people in the countries they occupied. There are many, many sad and tragic stories associated with WWII in the Pacific and all over the world. We do have the right to defend our country from others that wish us harm. Weak countries will always need protection. If we allow ourselves to become weak, then we will need to be protected and who will come to our defense? It is not an ideal world and we must face that reality. Peace is always the goal but not always attainable. If you are not familiar with WWII, then I urge you to educate yourself. There are no simple or easy answers to very complex issues involving war and humans seem destined to ignore history.
