ME­MO­RIAL FLAGS

Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

On May 22nd lo­cal res­i­dents, scout groups, the Amer­i­can Legion Post 68 ar­rived at Span­ish Fork Ceme­tery to serve those that have served us. As one walked through the area a peace­ful feel­ing could be felt as re­mem­ber­ing those who died for us, is a no­ble task. James Mea­son, (WWII, US Navy) with the Amer­i­can Legion said, “It’s kind of nos­tal­gic to walk through [the flags] and see your friends names. I used to see and as­so­ciate with all the time.”

An­other lo­cal res­i­dent, Michele Brown, stated “I was in the army. This re­ally needs to be done. Its heart warm­ing to see so many people come out and set these crosses and flags up.”

In 1987 there were about 180 crosses, to­day there are over 1600. Shall we re­nounce war and pro­claim peace?

Serve Daily would like to thank all the men and women who up­hold The Con­sti­tu­tion of the USA. May we work to main­tain our in­di­vid­ual free­dom through hav­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity and pro­mot­ing true lib­erty.
