The Flag of Freedom and Our Local Heroes

Published: November 18, 2016

The United States Flag is a beautiful site to all the Veterans who endured so much while defending freedom at home and around the globe.

Never…will I look at the American flag the same way after sharing a few hours with many of our local heroes from the United States Military. Their stories are very personal, very enlightening and very compelling.

William “Sonny” Simon, VFW Post 8216 said, “Cress Funeral and Cremation Service put on a Veterans Day brunch for veterans located throughout the Madison area community. Some very inspiring stories were told by many of the attendees. Thanks for including us and for the opportunity to hear from true American Heroes.”

Cress would like to extend many thanks to the Waunakee American Legion Post 360 for conducting a very touching Flag Raising Ceremony allowing us to show respect for our magnificent national symbol.

Also, we would like to thank Lisa Loichinger and the Middleton, Kromrey Middle School 5th graders for writing notes and drawing pictures to remember the important history of the military mail call. It had a special role in bridging the isolation for those deployed far from home.

Please support your local veterans group. Their memorial sites and associations are worthy causes for charitable giving. Veterans have given up so much for us and all future generations.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for attending our Veterans Appreciation Brunch. We will see you next year. If you missed sharing the morning with us, please watch for this special day in November 2017!
