A Morning to Remember…

While driving to work, I saw a man raising the American flag. He had a hat on with his war medals attached. I knew right away that he was a veteran.

Just the sight of him left me speechless. I stopped to share a conversation. His name is Glenn Eley. He is a proud WW2 veteran who served in Europe under the 12th Armor Division. He raises the American flag every morning he gets to work at the local hardware store in Arcanum, OH.

It`s a rare moment when you see the true meaning beneath the surface of one`s actions. This was one of those moments. He wasn’t raising the flag because he had to, or someone told him to do it. He was raising the flag because he was proud. He wanted to raise that flag. That flag holds meaning to him. He defended it. He fought for it. And now he raises that flag every morning out of love for his country.
