Flag Service

Active or retired military personnel can have a flag raised over HORNET to commemorate a special occasion. This is also a terrific way for family members to honor former crew.

The minimum donation is $25 to cover service, certificate of authenticity, and return postage.

Send your flag to:

Please allow a minimum of 2 to 4 weeks for return delivery. A certificate authenticating the day your flag was flown on the ship will be included.
