I can also tell you that the flags have been flying every day here on Sharan for the past week(+). You will see in pictures 2 & 3 they were at half-mast for part of this time because of some casualties that we have had here in theater. It is especially poignant to see the names of the memorial flag and know that Americans are still serving and giving their last full measure in defense of our freedoms.
Thank you for the kind words and we will continue to support this great effort you have undertaken. As soon as all the flags have been up for their day, we will return the flags, certificates and CD of pictures to you. They will be of much better quality than these attached, but I scaled them down to email.
