Weather postpones Colorado Springs U.S. Honor Flag event

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - The Honor Network announced Thursday evening all events for the United States Honor Flag in Colorado Springs were postponed due to the weather.

Originally, the U.S. Honor Flag was scheduled to arrive on May 19. Events were planned for the weekend, but have been postponed. The U.S. Honor Flag was redirected to Montana to honor Broadwater County deputy sheriff Masson Moore.

The Honor Network is a nonprofit dedicated to memorializing those Heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for their family, community, and country. It also serves to foster education of the American public regarding all heroes, past and present, and their organizations, including police, fire, and our nation’s military.

Shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks, a flag was gifted to
Chris Heisler by the Texas House of Representatives. Heisler set out for Ground Zero. Along the way, he helped to organize one of the longest police motorcades in the history of the United States, bound for Ground Zero bringing many tokens of support to our nation’s heroes. Since September 2001, the United States Honor Flag has paid tribute to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty, protecting our lives, our homes and our country.
