One Man’s Dream

Out on the Ponsford Prairie lives a man by the name of Howard.  Howard is a Vietnam Veteran, he served in the Marines.  Howard had a dream one night, he wanted to show his patriotism and honor all Veterans.  So on a hill appropriately named Bunker Hill next to his home, he built a place for six flags, Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, POW and the American flag to be displayed.  I heard of Howard and his dream, today was the changing of the flags. The flags were all changed out one by one, the old flags were captured in a container held by Howard’s grandsons, little boys who’s thoughts are not yet of wars.  One by one, each flag was lowered by a drum-roll, and a new one raised to the sounds of a lone bugler. It was a sight to see.  There was only one WWII Veteran there today..he is 92.
