Flag display needed at every school

To the Oregon School Board members:

As the widow of a World War II veteran who was literally blown apart (doctors were later shocked to see his wounds);

As the stepmother of a Vietnam veteran who retired as a lieutenant colonel; and as the step-grandmother of an army captain who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I am appalled that the American flag is not displayed in front of every school building. 

School board members – get with it.
