Made in America Matters.
Our products are proudly handmade by combat veterans.
We are dedicated to remembering, employing, and empowering our heroes… the men, women, and their families that have dedicated themselves to serving others. We aren’t just military veterans. We are Americans who are deeply grateful to the public servants, law enforcement, first responders, teachers, and many more. We not only employ combat veterans but were founded by them.
We believe that combat veterans deserve an opportunity, Made in America matters, and we should never stop giving back.
Flags Of Valor is all about SERVICE…Past, Present and Future.
We were founded on the simple truths that veterans deserve opportunity, made in America matters, and we should never stop giving back. Since our earliest days we’ve been dedicated to Remembering, Employing and Empowering our Heroes. We are far more than a veteran-run business…we are a business that is simply dedicated to serve.
Our team is exceptional and constantly growing. The majority of our craftsman are service-disabled, some with significant combat-related injuries. We’ve created an environment where teamwork is foundational and camaraderie is supreme. We’ve raised over $1M for veteran and first responder charities and work tirelessly to promote veteran issues and stories of courage. We are grateful for your continued trust and support!

Special Operations to Entrepreneurship
Since its start in 2015, Flags of Valor grew from a two person garage operation to a nationally heralded veteran manufacturing company. Founded by two veteran special operations pilots, FOV specializes in hand built wooden products that showcase American values. At its creation, they dedicated Flags of Valor to being American made, empowering veteran hands, and robustly giving back to charity. In just over four years they’ve proven this commitment by creating more than 65 veteran jobs, raising $1,050,000 for veteran and first responder charities, and delivering over 100,000 hours of Veteran Powered American manufacturing Labor.
The founders share a fundamental belief that our nation’s war veterans are one of its greatest resources. Every veteran entered military service lacking the technical skills of their military specialty, however they learned quickly and adapted to diverse environments. They’ve witnessed these strengths transferred to industry. A strong empathy for the veteran journey led them to purposely pursue some of the most troubled veterans who are dealing with Post Traumatic Stress or physical disabilities from their military service. The environment at Flags Of Valor serves as a sanctuary for them…a place where they can convert raw materials into beautiful works of art. Flags of Valor built a culture where camaraderie, shared mission, and love of country resonates deeply with every teammate.
