A special flag that was raised both on the steps of the State Capital and on a crane following the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington D.C. will now be on a tour of Texas with a stop right here in San Antonio.
Chris Heisler of the Austin-based The Honor Network has also taken the flag with him on missions to Afghanistan during his service in the military. He was compelled to join the military after the 9/11 attacks.
The tour began in Austin on July 1st, with July 17th being the day that San Antonio will get the flag, which will be displayed as part of the Honor Ride motorcyle tour. On July 18th the flag can be seen at Sea World before leaving four Houston, where the tour will wrap up with several displays.
