Every year we try to go up to Howard and Trudy’s for the flag ceremony.
Howard built a Vietnam War Memorial on the side of the hill near their home. Every year in August the flags are changed. Yesterday was the day.
Dave on the left and my Dad on the right.
My Dad helped to put the Army Flag up last year, so he was on hand to take it down this year. Far Guys Uncle Archie took down the Air Force Flag.
The Marine Color Guard was there.
Cousin Elmer put up the American Flag.
The old flags were disposed of properly.
The new flags hung limp in the summer air. Old men and young men and women all took part in the ceremony. It was a good day to remember all the Veterans that have fought for our freedom. It was a good day high on a hill on the edge of the prairie:)
