From my good friend, Danbury Asst. Fire Chief, Bernie Meehan: 4 hours ago Story of the pewter flag. On 9/11/01 our world changed. For me, I lost a good friend, a firefighter, and along with all Americans we struggled to find our new path. Everyone was scrambling to find American Flags for their houses, cars, and uniforms. With the lack of patriotism over the previous few years, there was actually a shortage of flags to go around. I found a small pewter flag at Woodbury Pewter and pinned it to my uniform. Over the years, I generally have some small pin on my uniform; the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, or something. After the Boston Bombing, I knew there'd be another surge of patriotism, even if only for a short while, so I pinned that little pewter flag back on my duty uniform.
