Patriotic display is good reminder of our greatness

To the editor:

My old flag was faded, and it seemed appropriate to replace it with a new one on this past Memorial Day. When my family and I took the old flag to the deposit box at Freedom Corner, we were met with a pleasant surprise. The display of flags was most impressive. Then as we came closer we heard the patriotic music and the pledge of allegiance. How wonderful. Thank you to the persons responsible for this remembrance. I hope this display will be there for the Fourth of July and many will take the opportunity to visit Freedom Corner. We need reminders to reflect and celebrate the greatness of our country that has been achieved through its military. We are truly a country blessed by God.
