Ultimate Flags helps honor 9/11 Heroes...

Ultimate Flags was honored to help make a beautiful event a reality in Deadwood, SD.  The event,  Healing Heroes Golf Tournament and retreat was held to honor the heroes of the 9/11 terrorist attacks over the 20th anniversary weekend at the Sacred Mountain Retreat Center.


Veteran Greg Maynard reached out to UltimateFlags.com for their help in creating and donating special flags for this event.  They were to be given as gifts to the heroes that were at ground zero on 9/11/01. “These guys said they weren’t heroes but were just doing their jobs,” said Maynard. 

Maynard’s role was to mentor veterans and law enforcement officers during a 7-day retreat. Although he was unable to play golf in the tournament due to a back injury, he had a great time with fellow veterans and first responders. “On the anniversary of 9/11, we had members of the NYPD and FDNY who all worked at Ground Zero come up and join us.”


When they arrived at the airport, the seven 9/11 heroes, Bruce Fitz, retired FDNY; Carl Meyer, retired FDNY; Chuck Todd, retired FDNY; Chris Dukes, retired NYPD; John Fitzgibbons, retired NYPD; Sean O’Neill, NYPD and Tom Kurtz, retired NYPD, were met by a police escort from the Rapid City Police Department and South Dakota Highway Patrol and hundreds of people waving signs and flags all along the one-hour route from the airport to the retreat.

During the retreat, two veterans were gifted with yellow lab support puppies. SMRC runs a program called Puppies Healing Heroes. The goal is to connect support dogs with service members and first responders who are affected by PTSD or other disabilities. It is a donation-based program.


SMRC offers an amazing program designed for and around the Veteran and First Responder communities as well as Gold Star families. It is a “No Cost” program, where the transportation, food and lodging costs are all covered by the charitable donations of others.

At the event, Maynard asked all the veterans, law enforcement and firefighters to sign a flag.  This flag was auctioned off and all proceeds were given to further benefit all those who come to Sacred Mountain Retreat Center.


Do you know someone who would benefit from time at Sacred Mountain? Their website states, “Not all scars are visible, but we all have them. Scars from watching friends die in a combat zone or taking another human life. Or, perhaps you’re an officer involved in a shooting that left a stain on your humanity. Maybe it was a fire call where the charred bodies still haunt you or the victim of a DUI that rode lifeless in the back of your ambulance. Every one of us who has walked with the devil and seen the darkness of humanity has a scar from their journey. It is part of the business, whether we knew it or not; part of the job we signed up for. Sadly, far too many try to weave a path through the chaos by themselves.” Sacred Mountain Retreat Center can help, visit www.sacredmtnretreat.org for more info. Or if you'd like to help make an impact on our nation's heroes, join the $6 on 6 program so you can help have the backs of all those that put their lives on the lines for our freedom.

Greg also asked the veterans, law enforcement and firefighters to sign 1 last flag so he could give to the owners of Ultimate Flags, Jonica and Glenn Hough, who never hesitate to help members of the military and 1st responders. 

Jonica Hough stated, " This was something special that I will treasure forever.  I am eternally grateful to all our veterans, law enforcement and 1st responders who keep our country and communities safe. I can't imagine what it was like in NYC on that tragic day.  They are ALL heroes in my book.  Thank you to all who serve, I humbly thank you for your service."

UltimateFlags.com will continue to support groups that help veterans, law enforcement and 1st responders. 


Jonica Hough stated, " I want to give a huge shout-out to Greg Maynard for always continuing to help others in our local community as well as nationally. You are appreciated more than words can ever express. And thank you for asking me to be a part of this beautiful event. I am honored to know you and call you my friend."

Ultimate Flags gets special recognition from USMC Special Forces...

Several months ago, UltimateFlags.com received an email from a Marine. Due to Covid19 and the USA flag manufacturing shortage, he was asking for USA flags to be donated and shipped to an unknown location overseas to help keep a Special Task Force safe. Jonica Hough, owner of Ultimate Flags Inc., answered the email stating she would be honored to help and asked what their shipping details were in order to receive a care package.

“I wanted our service men and women overseas to know that we care. I wanted them to know that they have our full support. I know being away from home so far away is tough for them and their families. As a mother and patriot, I treat every soldier, sailor, Marine, etc. with the same care I would my own children, and I give them the highest respect,” said Hough.

 Back in April, Mrs. Hough sent a care package, to go along with the 100 American Flags and did not think anything more of it. About a month went by, following which she received an email back from the USMC SFC Weyandt thanking her for the flags and the extra items that she had included. He said he would send her some pictures soon. Due to the nature of the assignment, Mrs. Hough explained, “I assumed there would be a couple pictures sent to my email but very limited and that would be that.”

Over the weekend, when Mrs. Hough received her mail, there was a package from USMC Special Task Force with a personal handwritten letter, along with pictures of the Marines with the USA flags and information on where exactly the flags were flown on the trucks, a patch and a certificate of authenticity from the Special Operations Task Force — Syria, Erbil and Iraq. See Video below:


Hough shared the letter she received, which read,

 “ Dear Ultimate Flags, I want to personally thank you for your donation of flags to the troops in Syria. Due to the sensitivity of the mission, I was unable to get a lot of photos. However, here are some photos and a flag that was flown for you all. This flag not only flew over the HQ in Iraq, it also flew to Syria and was placed on a truck during combat operations (truck pictures included). All your flags will be placed on vehicles and HQ buildings throughout Syria to keep American soldiers safe. From the men and women of Operation Task Force Syria, thank you for your support.” - SFC Weyandt

Mrs. Hough stated, “I was totally blown away. I didn’t expect him to go into such detail with photos, along with the actual flag and a certificate of authenticity that it was flown on the truck. With everything they do there, this was completely unexpected. 

I feel blessed to be born and raised in the small southern town of Okeechobee, FL. The people who serve our town care more, the teachers care more, we all look out for each other — it’s just a beautiful place for a family to raise their children to grow up. If you’ve ever lived in a bigger city, you know there’s a different feel to it than Okeechobee. In a bigger city, no one knows anyone, and people just don’t care as much. I am so honored to represent not only the greatest country in the world, but also my hometown of Okeechobee. Growing up in Okeechobee with an amazing group of community leaders has taught me to treat and care for others better. This has taught me that there truly is no place like home. And I am honored to be able to help the Armed Forces in any way I can. "



Ultimate Flags will continue to support the country’s servicemen and women in the Armed Forces. 





Mrs. Hough stated, "We are proud to help those who have served our country and made so many sacrifices so that we may continue to enjoy our freedom in the greatest country on Earth. A portion of our proceeds will always go to benefit our veterans and servicemen and women currently serving."
