The ​Flags & Wills of Honor ​Project was founded by Sean McCulloch of Greenville, NY.  After the untimely passing of a fellow Deputy, McCulloch saw the need for members of the emergency services and veterans to have a will and other estate paperwork in place. 

It was during this time that he also saw how important it is for the emergency services to have the proper American Flag readily available to honor our veterans and fellow emergency service members when they pass.

The ​Flags & Wills of Honor ​Project ​is a 501(c)(3) public charity.#FA0505#FA0505
PHASE 1:  Raise funds to purchase 5'X9.5' American Flags for distribution to emergency services and to have American Flags readily available for when it may be needed for a departed veteran or emergency service member.                (OUR CURRENT PHASE)

PHASE 2:  Raise funds and recruit attorneys to assist our veterans and emergency service members with establishing a will and other estate planning documents free of charge.

The project is in its infancy and will set its sights on Greene County NY first.  Once Greene County has been serviced, we will expand to the surrounding counties and continue moving forward from there. 

Requests for an American Flag can be made by email or phone.  All requests will be reviewed and acted upon if resources permit.
On January 27th, 2018 the FWHP will be hosting our first annual Polar Bear Plunge at the Coxsackie Yacht Club.

Plungers are encouraged to wear creative costumes that are family friendly and to make this a team event.
