World War I Service Banner
The first service banner was created in 1917 by Capt. Robert Queisser, formerly of the Fifth Ohio Infantry, living in Cleveland, Ohio to recognize the service of two sons serving overseas during World War I. The banner was quickly adopted across the country when it was officially recognized by President Woodrow Wilson that year. This is an original World War I-era service banner with flocked textured features with the motto "Serving Our Country" in red and blue.
