Great respect for flag prompts actionOctober 12, 2020
To the editor:
Even before joining the Air Force, I had great respect for the American flag. I take pride in making sure my flag is displayed properly and well-lit.
One evening, while driving past the Fairview Cemetery, I noticed the flag at the top of the hill was dimly lit. Upon investigation, I found that both light fixtures needed replaced.
I would like to publicly thank the officers and members of the VFW Post 673, American Legion Post 147, Disabled American Veterans Chapter #77, Navy Club, Marine Corps League, and the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus. All it took was one phone call to each organization and the project was fully funded and put into motion.
A special thank-you goes to my brother Raymie for helping me replace and direct the lights.
