Small-town Americanism

Holton, KS

On the 10th of September - prior to the Holton High School football game - a group of veterans from KS Legion Post 44 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1367 carried a LARGE American flag to the center of the field. As the large flag was unfurled, several vets in the crowd also rose and rushed to help support the flag. The band played the national anthem. Afterward this photo was posted on our Legion Facebook page - our Vice CC Pat Fontaine challenged viewers and all local veterans to help with the next event, for Friday Sept. 24, at another high school game; he wanted 100 volunteers. That will be the next story. His goal was to show that not all of America is divided.
