About This Event

Why: As a demonstration of American resolve and in support of the victims' families, employees of American Airlines, United Airlines, and Military Service Members, and Federal employees will carry a United States flag across the country. This flag was flown over Iraq in the cockpit of a U.S. F-16 in support of Operation Southern Watch on October 2, 2001. Proceeds from this event will benefit selected charities in support of the victims of the tragedy on September 11, 2001.

When: The flag will leave Boston on October 11, 2001 with a goal to arrive in Los Angeles on Veteran's Day, November 11, 2001. These cities represent the origination and destination of American Flight 11 and United Flight 175.

How: The flag will be carried around the clock to achieve this goal. The routing is being developed but will proceed from Boston, through: New York, Washington, Atlanta, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Albuquerque, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. U.S. military personnel and Federal employees will be involved as the flag moves through the D.C. area. Additional participation from employees of other airlines and military and Federal employees, as well as the general public, is anticipated as the event crosses the country and, in particular, in the vicinity of military and Federal installations.
