The Pennsylvania Moose Association, in partnership with the American Braille Flag Project, will dedicate a bronze American Braille Flag for the Flight 93 National Memorial Visitor Center at 10:00 a.m. on Flag Day, Friday, June 14, 2024. The bronze flag has fifty raised stars and thirteen stripes and includes the pledge of allegiance in braille, allowing the Flight 93 National Memorial visitors to experience this recognized symbol of freedom.  

“The Moose and American Braille Flag Project are honored to come together to ensure the American Flag is accessible for everyone to ‘see’ at Flight 93 National Memorial,” said Jim Hudack, President of Pennsylvania Moose Association. “Everybody should be able to recognize the flag, whether you can see it or not,” said Walt Peters, President of the American Braille Flag Project. 

Members of the public and media are invited to attend the thirty-minute unveiling. The program will take place at the back of the Visitor Center at Flight 93 National Memorial and conclude with the dedication of the bronze braille flag. 

About the American Braille Flag Project 

Randolph Cabral, President of the Kansas Braille Transcription Institute (KBTI) and the son of a World War II blind veteran created the tactile/Braille American Flag to honor his father. In February 2008, the U.S. Congress unanimously authorized the placement of a bronze monument of the Braille Flag at Arlington National Cemetery as a tribute to the blind veterans of all wars, and other blind Americans.
