My Flag, Part Two

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

Perhaps I should say my Two Flags.

To the left of "Old Glory" is the North Dakota Medal Of Honor Memorial and the flag to the right is the official flag of North Dakota.

Another flag in my neighborhood that I appreciate although I can not say it is beautiful, actually kind of ugly, I like what it stands for... The American Zoological Association. Here it is, also flown next to Old Glory.

Good morning, Bob, the North Dakota Medal of Honor Memorial looks like an amazing place (made more amazing by Old Glory).

It is a little spot Nina Hollander, Broker but it is so nice to read about these young men who didn't have a selfish bone in their bodies compared to the general "me first" attitude prevalent today.

Thank you Kat Palmiotti . I had a wonderful Fathers day with my son, Timmothy, coming home after 3 weeks of traveling with his sister, my daughter Tina. Tina is still in Milwaukee but we communicate on the phone every night.

Hmm, I didn't even know that there was a Zoological Association much less them having a flag, haha.

If they didn't fly it I would not have known either Brian England . I have a feather flag for my Notary business but I doubt it is "official" 😄

Good morning Bob. Nice selection with which to pay tribute. The challenge this month is causing me to pay attention to flags that I may have just passed by. Enjoy your day.

I am paying more attention as well Wayne Martin . I don't know about you but I am seeing some pretty ragged ones out there that need to be replaced.

Bob "RealMan" Timm If I'm ever in North Dakota the Medal of Honor Memorial will be on my list to visit.  Also, I'm glad to see that the Zoological Flag was flown on a separate flag pole and NOT on the same halyard as the American Flag

Ditto everything you said Doug Dawes and of course if you are in Minot I will buy lunch or what ever meal we are close to at the time. 😃

Bob "RealMan" Timm - The Medal of Honor Memorial is very special. If it wasn't for you, I never would have seen it or learned about how North Dakota honors the flag. This is a great entry!

Thank you Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP . I love that Minot has/keeps the North Dakota Medal and that it is located so close to my home.

Hello Bob "RealMan" Timm .  Nice shot of the memorial and flags.  I know I would enjoy hearing more about the 'medal of honor' portion of this memorial.  A single person? People from ND that have received the honor?  You have tweaked my curiosity.  Thank you for your posts.  Mark

I'm glad I did spark your curiosity Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho . I have done an extensive post on the Memorial in the past but I'd say it is time for me to repost it. Off of the top of my head I'd say there are 30 ND Medal of Honor recipients.

Bob, another great entry for this month's challenge.   At least you had some wind to make the flags move!

I stopped several times over several days to get the right shot Joan Cox . I'd guess I shot close to 50 shots before getting what you see above.
