This flag is promoted by a fully registered not-for-profit foundation charging $5 for the flags (after initially distributing them for free): usakia.blogspot.com/2006/03/free-flags-for-kia-families-program.html.
Its use in USA is unknown.

The goal of the "Flags of Freedom Program" is to provide a special free KIA Memorial Flag to any the surviving spouses or parents of those killed in action or who died of wounds received in combat in the War against Terrorism. Since there is no special national memorial flag for those who die in combat, they state that the KIA Memorial Flag "is dedicated to Honor and Remember all those killed in combat and those that died of wounds received in combat and the surviving families that endure so much." This KIA Memorial Flag, designed by Randy Yglesias, was first flown at American Legion Post 154 in Marathon, Florida on Pearl Harbor Day 2008.
