Yes, you can display a Service Flag for your
family member even if he or she is not deployed. The
Service Flag is intended to be displayed for those who are
serving whenever the US is engaged in an armed conflict.
The war against terror continues to be fought at home and
abroad. All our troops, stateside or deployed should
have a Service Flag flown in their honor as long as we fight
this dreadful war. Flying the Service Flag gives
recognition and honor to the risk they take by serving our
country, and also reminds friends and neighbors of your
family members service.
