I have a thing about our flag. When I see one tattered, torn, dirty and still up there flying, I get totally nuts. I will call every name in the phone book until I get someone to take the flag down.
We have thousands and thousands of young people buried around the globe who died defending that flag. Can't we honor them with a clean flag? One we are proud to fly and salute?
We have a resident here who fought and served on Iwo Jima. I once asked him if he ever participated in any of the reunions that some of the men held.
"I fought to get out of hell. Why would I want to go back."
