The flags were changed yesterday at Bunker Hill. The tradition continues, Howard said yesterday “I will go on until I cannot, I know it sure helped me so my hope it that it helps other Veterans too.”
The view from Bunker Hill looking over the prairie. There was smoke from the wildfires in the air enough so that it blotted out the sun.
The flags were collected and fresh ones put up one by one. Some of the Veterans are getting older and it was windy.

My cousin Scott’s daughter Bailey read one of her original poems about a Veteran. Bailey is involved with the BentProp Project which tries to return the remains of Missing In Action Veterans to family.
The new flags will fly on Bunker Hill until next August.
The old flags were burned properly as indicated by flag disposal rules.
There were many old people in attendance. There was a people mover and several golf carts that moved people up and down the hill. We took a ride up but walked back down again. Trudy serves a picnic after the “doings” but we didn’t stay.
Although Howard is a Marine and a Vietnam Veteran, Bunker Hill honors all branches of The Armed Forces and all the Wars/Conflicts.
