My sister and I share joint custody of the Flag that was presented to us for my Father. I get the odd years, she gets the even. On the even years I make it a point to get out to see all the kids did a wonderful job putting the flags up. Thank you ever so much means so much to all that support our country and the families of the fallen heros!

Bless our soldiers!!!

Great job Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts! Thank you.

And many thanks to all of those who have served in the armed forces, especially those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. You will always be remembered and honored!
