This is in answer to the letter published in the paper last Saturday from Lucas Jasso regarding the flags on the memorial at Veterans Memorial Park.
As of today (Feb. 3) they have been replaced. When I was informed last Monday that they needed replacing, I immediately ordered new flags. As soon as they came in today, they were replaced.
For future reference, the local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post has made a commitment to replace these flags as needed. All the post asks is that the members of the community help us monitor the flags, and if they need to be replaced, please call 361-358-1331 to let us know.
