WHERE WAS YOUR FLAG MADE?
There are a lot of flags sold on the internet especially on Ebay that the sellers "Claim" are made in the United States. Truth is many of those flags or parts of them are actually made in China and Taiwan.
If you want to be confident your flag was 100% made in the U.S.A. Look no further than a member of the Flag Manufacturers Association of America.
If your flag does not have the manufacturers name on the bunting near the top gromet it may have been made outside the U.S.A. Current members of the FMAA are:

Right after posting the remembrance, one of our board members found some contact information for Capt. Kizer's brother. We have been messaging via email back and forth and we now have another excellent photo of our friend and brother Captain Carl S. Kizer..
