Description: Sheet music to a song called 'There's a Service Flag in the Window' written and published by Colonel Charles Young and dedicated to Charles Burroughs. Charles Young was the first African American to reach the rank of Colonel in the U.S. Army and, at the time of his death in 1922, was the highest-ranking African American officer in the Army. He is known for having been forced into retirement due to health concerns before the start of World War I and later riding from Wilberforce, Ohio, to Washington, D.C. to prove his physical fitness for duty.
