Anyone know where I can get a replacement for mine? It's been in my front window since my Coastie arrived home from boot camp 10 years ago. Strangely enough, the adhesive on the Velroc tabs let go and it fell the very day his cutter arrived back in port from his first tour in the Bering Sea; very prophetic, huh? Like it was holding on as a good omen to keep him safe. Anyway, when it fell, there was some condensation on the window sill and it discolored. I rinsed it out in cold water, but a lot of the dye also washed out and the star is very faded. He is back at sea and it is really bothering me not to have my 'charm' in the window protecting him. So far I haven't found another one.

MI Coastiemom, try the Gold Star Mothers website: www.goldstarmoms.com
They have a listing of suppliers that might be able to help you out. Best to you and your Coastie!

I will look into, Crew Chief, thanks for the tip. I think this one came from the American Legion, but I am not sure.

Lot of cool stuff....geared toward the Marine Corp but you'll find your flags there.
