Dear Ms. Local HB,

At quite an expense, the American Legion Post 113 erected three flagpoles in the Promenade area of the HB Pier. My husband and I walk there EVERY DAY...

For the past few months, NONE of the four flags that are SUPPOSED to be flying ARE flying. This is a direct 'slap' to every Veteran who has served our country, not to mention our Citizens who cherish - and find comfort - in the flying of these flags.

In the past, the four flags - our USA flag, the flag of California, the city flag and our POW flag waved gently in the wind... Many times we watched people watching the flags - smiling - taking photographs - and seeing their PRIDE as they looked at the flags. It is a symbol of unity that all of us so badly need right now.

We understand too that the flags were donated by the American Legion - so why does the City NOT make an effort to keep these flags flying?

Thank you!

Totally agree. What a shame that has been allowed.
