GENERAL FLAGG is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, as were five preceding generations of Flaggs. General Flagg shares DUKE's philosophy of personally leading his troops into a firefight, instead of sending out orders from behind the lines in some cozy commander's tent. When the call is given to charge, he's the one shouting it from the front. His strategies on the battlefield have twice earned him the Medal of Valor and countless decorations as he carries on his family's proud military tradition.
