Vietnam Veteran Flag Salute

I was in Vietnam at the similar time as Paul. I was serving in Bien Hoa in the USAF . Paul was two years behind me at Neshannock HS but I was aware of him there. I just got back stateside when I learned of his passing. I sincerely respected Paul for standing with his fellow veterans for what he thought was the right thing to be doing. He gave his life for a higher principle and honor by laying his life down for his friends. Jesus called this 'No greater Love" (John 15:13).
While visiting my fathers grave in Oak Park I stumbled upon Paul's grave nearby, which was lacking a Vietnam Veterans Flag. Therefore, I secured a Vietnam Veteran stand and mounted a U.S. flag next to his grave site . It was the least I could do for a fellow veteran, as well as a prayer and salute to a fellow honored veteran .
