This is a follow up to our plea asking that our flags be returned to Courtland Township Cemetery. We received one phone call from a resident whose son has been laid to rest in our cemetery. This gentleman has such great passion for what happened here. His son, too, served this great nation to allow you and I the freedoms and the sense of security knowing our military men and women are protecting this great nation each and every day. This proud Dad, who did not desire his name to be published, contacted the Cedar Springs American Legion Commander to inquire if he could purchase replacement flags. Instead, the Legion out of Cedar Springs donated 144 flags to be put up on our Veterans’ gravesites! Wow, does that make your heart swell with pride!

A special thank you goes out to this passionate Dad, who is extremely proud of his son! Thank you to the Commander and the Cedar Springs American Legion for their desire to acknowledge and show respect to the Veterans who have been laid to rest in Courtland Township Cemetery.
