GODFREY — On Saturday, May 24, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1308 in Alton arrived at the United Methodist Village with 32 flags in hand.
They placed them around the front entrance of the community in honor of the veterans who live at the Village, staff and the veterans’ families. Veterans Dave Stout, Tim Sanders, Arthur Moore, Mic Erwin and Lou Carter gave their time and energy to place the flags.
Resident Phyllis Dickerson was on hand to take the pictures and personally thank the members of the VFW Post. Dickerson’s husband and grandson served in the military, and the flags brought a tear to her eyes.
