Old Glory Flies Again in Memory of WWII Vet
“The flag of our country once again flies at Criss’s Flower Shop in Redway,” reports Tom Pietila who is a member of the local American Legion post. “Old Glory” he said, was replaced after a rope broke three months ago.
Family Tree Service and Garberville Post 494 of the American Legion worked together to replace the flag.
[I]ts taken this long to find some one to replace the rigging,” Pietila wrote. He explained that the banner was originally set up “[i]n honor to Louie, late husband to Criss and WWII veteran.
