Hoping always to defend the flag


I wish to publicly thank this fine young couple, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Pope Jr., for replacing the ragged and torn United States of America flag that has so long flown at the Pope Center.

The mayor could have easily added a new flag to his many accolades.

The flag is very close to my heart and I hope always will be. I learned to love it more during my 18 months in World War II in Europe.

I hope to have the courage to always defend any abuse of it.
