Default For our Marines

I told the daughter of one who is a dear friend of ours and he recently pasted away. That I would post this
anywhere I could.

Died in his mid 80's a few years back because my sister wasn't taking proper care of him after he had a stroke.

we have 3 people on our road. A marine vet, navy vet and me who is a CG and navy vet. The marine got us to do something that's kind of cool. Every sunday morning we fly our flags at half mass from 8am till noon in respect for ALL the soldiers who have died in service to our country. Weve been doing it about a year and half now. Only exception is a couple time when we had really bad blizzards I didn't get mine down but that marine would probably crawl naked through the snow to lower his. Feel free to join us. It would be a cool thing if everyone did it. NEVER FORGET!!

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!

My dads flag sits in a Wooden display case on my mantle in the center of my living room. He was a WW1 navy vet.

I donít have a outdoor flag pole but have been thinking about buying one. Of course no one would see it but my family because we live back in the woods and pastures.

Yup all of ya all......as the Missouri folk would say it. My good buddy Dick Head Clark jumped out of perfectly good airplanes with the 81st Air Borne and he liked it. Cancer got him 2 years ago!

Pastorp- since we are "compassed around by the saints who have gone before us" all those we are honoring and remembering will see it.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus
