Dedication of US Flag that Flew over Nation's Capitol; now in Downtown Hammond, Indiana above the Yale Business Center
We met at the VFW Hall in downtown Hammond and a rep from Sen. Joe Donnelly's office joined us. There were 70 children from the local Montessori school in downtown Hammond. They sang several patriotic songs and were really cute, too. Sen Donnelly's aide, Justin Mount, read a letter from the Senator, presented the flag to the Commander of the VFW, I was asked to speak (short greeting) and was able to say that the last time this flag was flying, it was over our nation's Capitol.
