Help Needed To Replace Unite States Flag At Northeast Memorial
The giant flag that has flown over Northeast El Paso for almost 20 years had to be taken down because its pole had been damaged by high winds.
You know how the wind can get around here, especially in Spring, and as it rolls down the eastern face of the mountains, it really picks up some speed. With nothing to block that force, the pole that holds the American flag high above the Old Glory Memorial was starting to show some stress and had to be taken down.
The estimated total cost of replacing the pole and returning "Old Glory" to her spot, high above Northeast El Paso, across from the Franklin Mountains, is $150K. A gofundme account has been started to help raise that money on behalf of the El Paso Texas Chapter of Flags Across America. You can donate to the gofundme account or, to the EP Flags across America chapter directly by mail:
