I would like to respond to the letter July 9, "Where was the U.S. flag?" My wife, Gloria, and my daughter Sandy also noticed that there was no American flag leading the Shriners Parade this year. I would like to go on record right now to volunteer to assemble an honor guard to lead the 2015 Shriners Parade.
If anyone from the Shriners Parade Committee, the Belleville City Council or other involved committee would like, they can contact me. I would be very proud to put a group together to carry our American Stars and Stripes.
Thank you and God bless America.
