As the weeks and months and years pass each Tuesday morning we head to the hill to hold our flags in honor of our troops and Elaine’s Tuesday messages continue without a break.
I have food on my table
But I will remember the hungry
I have a job right now
But I will remember the jobless
I have my own home
But I will remember the homeless
I have my own pain
But I will remember those who suffer
I can and will help by my words and deeds
By listening to a friend or helping someone in need
Compliment the weary and comfort those who cry
You can do more than you know if only you will try.

The Freeport Flag Ladies
17 School Street,
Freeport, ME 04032
As I've mentioned, to those of us with sons and daughters serving in Iraq, it is highly possible that these ladies were the last people they saw when leaving the country.
They try to go to Bangor, approximately a two and a half hour trip one way for them, to send off all the departing units.
They take pictures, which they post, give hugs and let all know that they are loved and that their service is appreciated.
They also try to be there when they come home, to greet them and thank them once again.
The very least we can do is thank them, and support them as we are able and see fit.
