Operation Honor in Owen County makes hand-crafted flag cases used at Arlington cemetery, hires veterans

Operation Honor based in Owen County not only hires veterans, the nonprofit business makes Hand-Crafted flag cases to sell land to donate to veterans cemeteries across the nation.

Partnering with a variety of local business for materials and hiring veterans to make the cases, Operation Honor was recently at Williamstown Veterans Cemetary to replace 15 indigent veterans burial flag cases.

Replacing cases at Williamstown cemetery

The organization now makes the only Burial Flag Case carried at Arlington National Cemetery and all made in Owen County, said founder Joe Montgomery.

Operation Honor was formed over 10 years ago when a group of veterans and patriots decided to give something back. We began paying disabled veterans to make custom tailgating equipment and then shipped it to our troops all over the world.

As the organization grew, its founders decided to become a 501(c)3 public charity. To better convey our mission, we became Operation Honor.  It now hires veterans to hand-craft flag cases to sell and donate to our veteran cemeteries across the nation. 

On Veterans Day 2016 Operation Honor delivered its first six Veteran made Burial Flag Cases to Arlington National Cemetery and have been making them for patriots all over America ever since.
