Thanks to the unknown patriot who has kept the flag flying

— I drive back and forth from Little Orleans to Cumberland five days a week to go to work. I want to thank the unknown person that has kept the American Flag flying above the pine tree on the hill by Interstate 68 on Polish Mountain. That flag reminds me daily of those who have served our country and are serving us now so that we can have the freedoms we have.

Both my parents were in the service during World War II and that flag, for me, is a memorial to them. The flag was missing a few days during the week of July 4, probably due to the storm; but was flying proudly when I came to work July 7. What a wonderful sight it was when I crested the hill. Again, thank you for your patriotism.
