FFfAW-Old Glory

The American Veterans of Foreign Wars had a yearly project of claiming a hill to fly the American Flag. The hill preferably needed to look out over the valley, town, or city. There they would proudly fly The Stars and Stripes.

This year they decided on a hill that stood over the small city, Newart. There the air was breezy and the sky was bright blue. Together, they lifted the flag and flag pole and claimed the hill.

Afterwards, they all met at their meeting hall and tossed a few beers and celebrated their successful project of flying Old Glory.
