Letter to the Editor, Sept. 22
Great job by Cascade Girl Scouts
Sunday afternoon Sept. 15, a friend and I attended a "USA Flag Disposal Ceremony" the Girl Scouts presented which was very interesting and respectful. They were under the leadership of Virginia Dennis and other Scout Leaders. This was held at the VFW in Shelbyville.
It was so impressive, so touching and honorable to our USA Flag and all the men and women who have and are serving America for us to have freedom. My son, Byrom Holden, served 21 years in the Air Force and he was delighted that you had this ceremony and that I shared it with him and his wife.
Everything was carried out properly and I want to thank all of you who had a part in it. It was a spirit there that I had not experienced before with our flag.
This should be done all over the USA in small communities and towns like ours in Shelbyville. This is teaching the young people respect for the flag and all phases of the military and civic organizations.
Please have another ceremony like this soon. I will help promote it.
Nell R. Holden
