Day 149: Placed American Flags on the Graves of Veterans
Staff Sgt. John La Giglia and my good friend, Marine Sgt. Lee Best. After taking the time to thank them, I started thinking about how I would be able to honor or thank soldiers that lost their lives on the field of battle. While out running errands this morning with my wife, we passed a cemetery, and I started thinking about all of the soldiers who were buried in there that hadn't been honored. So today, for my random act of kindness, my family drove to Home Depot and bought American flags to place on the graves of as many soldiers as we could find that hadn't already received one. We were able to honor soldiers of World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. If you know someone in the Armed Forces, or see a member of the military walking around today, be sure to thank them, shake their hand, buy them a beer or something to let them know the importance of their job.
