United States Of America Combat Flag

March 30th, 2015 by

If you’ve ever been to our dealership, I am sure you have seen the American Flag that is in one of the hallways of our dealership.  It is a very special American flag that was flown by member of A-Co 1/140th Aviation Assault Battalion aboard a Blackhawk helicopter.  One of the members of that battalion is Phuc Tran, a now friend of Jim and Sharon Bridges and he donated this flag to their popular non-profit West Coast Thunder.  When asked about the flag, Jim said, “the flag was folded and placed on the dashboard of the helicopter.  When the helicopter was on the ground anyone could see the flag across the front of it.”

This combat flag was flown from May 1, 2011 through July 4, 2011 in Northern Iraq throughout hostile enemy territories and it accumulated 100 combat flight hours on 10 combat missions.

If you are ever in the dealership be sure to stop by and check it out in person.  It really is something special something!
