Fort Pickett, Virginia - Thanks to a sharp-eyed employee at the Virginia War Museum in Newport News, Virginia, another treasure trove of historic flags has been found. While conducting an inventory of a seldom-used storage compartment at the museum, the museum worker quickly realized that the contents of the cabinet contained the World War I Regimental flags for the 111th Field Artillery Regiment and the 116th Infantry Regiments of the 29th Division.
