    1. Thank you, M’am.

      North County Park is on the other side of the road from the Memorial Tower where I shot you and Bill Hopkins. On patriotic holidays, the park roadways are lined with American flags donated by families of servicemen. The first burial flag turned in as part of the display honored Robert L. Taylor Jr., who was killed in the Vietnam War.

      Knowing that makes the Parade of Flags more than just pretty. Some of the older flags are getting a bit tattered, but that makes then even more special.
