Wednesday: Fly flags to honor military

April 10, 2013 

— How appropriate it would be to see a sea of American flags flown all around Columbia on Memorial Day and July 4. I have lived in Columbia for 10 years and like everything about it but feel like our citizens shortchange the sacrifices made by our military.

These brave men and women deserve our support. Columbia, show your colors for these coming holidays. Don’t just take a day off. Our servicemen and -women can’t.
