Friday Flags A Memorial in Oakville CT

Our jobs are dependent on our driving round to see house with our clients. In doing so we pass so many places that can carry a memory or excite a new one.

While making my weekly stop to one of my vacant listings, I pass a corner site that is currently a brownfield, but at one time was a large manufacturing space. employing many people around the clock.

Friday Flags A Memorial in Oakville CTWhile the space is fenced off and just an expanse of green, on the front corner, stands a memorial that is an honor roll:

Dedicated to the Honor and Sacrifice to those men and women who served our country in World War II.

And just adjacent to this memorial is our nation's flag, as a reminder of the cost of freedom.

This Friday Flags is appropriate for showing our country's colors, but also on a Memorial Day Weekend. Lest We Forget.
