Follow-up on my post from Saturday:  6,809 flags...
So far, two t.v. stations have picked up the story. One has a story on their website as well as run an On-air spot, and the other did a lengthier On-air spot.
I've taken a peek on-line at the Local Newspapers and haven't seen anything there yet. Hopefully there will be some coverage in them as well. With so many local Memorial Day activities going on this week-end, they could almost devote a whole issue to covering them!
*EDIT - the newspapers did - here and here.

To quote from Commander Bob Cooper of our Local VFW Chapter:
Q. What is the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day?

Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor those who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime. In fact, Veterans Day is … (0 comments)
