Flags for more than display on holidays


Monday, December 11, 2017

In my travels in the last week or two around Greenfield and Turners Falls, I noticed something missing. It looked to me like well over half the American flags had been taken down and put away until the next Fourth of July or veterans holiday.

As a retired Marine and a Vietnam veteran with two Purple Hearts, it makes me kind of sad to think so many of my fellow Americans only display our symbol of freedom on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day. I’m proud to be an American every day. Think about it.
