Help Us Replace the Flags Stolen From the Graves of Veterans in Bell County
The thought of someone stealing an American Flag from the grave of a veteran that served, and died, serving their country is beyond disgusting.
Our listeners are now stepping up to replace not only the flags stolen, but also gathering flags for other veterans' graves that may have been missed Memorial Day weekend when the Little River-Academy Fire Department laid out on graves.
I received an email this morning from Clay Norman of the Little River-Academy Fire Department informing me of the thefts, and after casually mentioning on-air that we needed to replace the stolen flags, listeners have begun cleaning stores out of their stash of flags.
If you'd like to gather a handful of flags and donate to the cause, there are a handful of locations in Temple, Killeen, Harker Heights and Copperas Cove that are offering to take your flag donations and forward them to us. We're hoping to have all the necessary flags collected by Friday so that by the time the weekend rolls around we can get the flags back where they belong, honoring the men and women that served, and sacrificed, for our country.
If you feel compelled to assist in this process, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Find a location to drop off your flag donation:
Our radio station location in Temple is the spot to bring flags if you're in East Bell County. We're open Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm.
Talk to Tonya to drop off your donations.
Krisna has volunteered to take your donations.
Donna is the individual to contact.
Brad Harlow, a soldier at Ft. Hood, has volunteered to man the front entrance of the Killeen Walmart Thursday (6/5) beginning at 5pm. Drop off your flags to Brad at that time.
Since the Little River-Academy Fire Department first put the flags on the veterans' graves only to see them stolen, feel free to drop off flags M-F 8-5.
