Flags Across Murray County

Happy Halloween... it is a rainy one here and colder weather coming in! Well it is FALL after all.

Today I am posting about a GREAT thing that my hometown and county is doing to honor the service men and women of our area, living and deceased.  Elizabeth Robinson came up with the idea to place crosses with flags across the courthouse lawn in celebration of Veterans Day. When my sister, Leta, heard about it we girls decided we had to get one for our Daddy.


About half of the 100 flags were assembled yesterday.


So impressive.

People from all walks of life came to help with this project.


Our local football team came to help. We hear so much about the bad things young people do but I am hear to tell you these are some fine young men who are honoring our veterans.


One of the local vets got a change to walk among the crosses and flags.

Just another reminder that Freedom is not Free.

That is a super idea. It also demonstrates how many men from the small nooks and crannies have served our country.
