An Early Blue Star Service Flag At The Erie Maritime Museum
Main Article Content
Blue Star Service Flags note the military service of a family member. They began during World War I. One early such flag hung in the Erie home of USS Wolverine sailor William H. Stine. Stine, the flag, and their history is discussed as a way for the Homefront to quietly, proudly, and publicly, note the service of a loved one.
