Old Glory Relay Moves Through Pennsylvania In Its First Week
Beginning at Ground Zero in New York City on September 11, the American Flag has traveled into Pennsylvania over the past week as part of Team RWB’s Old Glory Relay. Our partners at MI Windows and Doors celebrated and honored our nation’s veterans as the Old Glory Relay flag passed by their headquarters on Friday, September 17, 2021.
“Through our MI Charitable Foundation, our team has made it a priority to support veterans and the Old Glory Relay is an ideal way to commemorate our selfless service men and women who sacrificed so much to provide us the freedoms we enjoy every day,” said Matt DeSoto, CEO of MI Windows and Doors.
With support from our partners at MI Windows and Doors, Eagles have logged over 425 miles with the American flag, on their journey to Atlanta on Veterans Day.
The Old Glory Relay flag also stopped by America’s oldest brewery! Yuengling supports Team RWB through its Stars and Stripes Program and on September 16, Jen Yuengling, a 6th generation sister and VP of Operations ran side by side with Eagles carrying the flag.
Veterans and supporters will continue to move the flag over the next seven weeks.
“It’s an opportunity to spend some time with vets for a good cause,” said Matt M., an Army veteran and Team RWB Eagle. “9/11 had a big impact on me and my service, so to know the flag started at the World Trade Center, working its way through the Flight 93 Memorial – reflecting on that and what it means to me and my service.”
