Believe me, I'm already beating her up about the fifth group flash... Haha

The old black-and-white 5th group flash is currently in the works, just because she's had a few requests for it. What do you guys think? Do you want black flash or the Vietnam Circa / current Flash?

If you guys are interested in a specific group Flash with regimental crest, please message myself or her direct on Etsy. Then once it's complete, she can post it on the site and we can message you guys that are interested in specific ones.

Thanks again fellas!

In my opinion, she should do all of the Groups' flashes, at least one of each.

I’m torn as I wore both. Vietnam was always my favorite.

Got my PRF flag today - gorgeous work, along with a nice personalized note from Penny. Talented indeed. This will get framed into something durable, as it's going to hold sway at the campsite of an annual get-together in June with some, shall we say, forest brothers. (One of those things where there is much open-fire, steaks, beer & brass made the old-fashioned way.)

Lovely & wonderfully talented lady.

Thanks a bunch! She truly does appreciate the support. I'm glad you like the product!

Oh wow. That is nice stuff. Love to see more flashes... more whatever. I just bought a bunch of AR 15 parts (well, like several rifles worth) so i'm laying low for a paycheck or two, but I will place an order soon. Love the PRF flags!

IMHO, she should simply cycle thru painting all the SFG flashes as a base product as well as the PRF flags. There is a market for paintings and prints. She would sell both steadily.

Hey guys, just to give you a heads up... Mom has started working on the Vietnam era 5th Special Forces Group Flash. After a lot of great feedback from you guys, she is going to start cycling through all of the different groups with regard to hand painting the flashes on canvas. She will also have them made into posters for a more economical option as well. Those will always be available where as the paintings will take a little more time.

Eventually, if this thing seems to grow, we're going to try and get her off of the Etsy site and get her involved in a more legitimate website that will give her a little more flexibility.

On another note, the new stickers are in!

Thanks again for all of the support, and keep the suggestions coming!

I had your mother create a new piece for me that was based on a 101st Patch from WWII. A lot of different contractors were used back then to supply the division. This patch stood out to me and she really nailed it!

I know this is small potatoes right now fellas based on the situation my family is in...We are moving along, mainly due to the support of many of you. Thank you again for all of the help, those who know what I'm talking about.

On another note, my mom finished up the 5th group circa Vietnam era flash and Crest on her site for those who are interested! We are trying to get this thing to take off so she can work on setting up a legitimate website versus Etsy as they are really holding her back. Any leads on whosalers or potential retail outlets, please pass them along as we are really hoping that her work can get out there and maybe.....just maybe.....get her to the point where she won't have to work full time as a senior citizen and this whole thing can run itself.

Thanks again!

Is her plan to do only SF or SoF? Many more possible customers in other units. Might start with the biggies like 1st CAV, 3RD ID, 4 TH, etc.

She did the 101 patch, however I think she is waiting for some more demand first on those, or a custom order as they take around 6 hours to complete in total. Being that we have no representative in any of said units, we have kind of pumped the brakes on those.

Just received my 5th flash and couldn't be more pleased. Got it hanging in the Man Cave.
