OK I know your all wondering if Wayne is getting? Goofy? Well ok this wasn’t all my Idea. I was in Church listening to another one of Pastors Don Sermons. I thought let’s remember the Veterans this Memorial Day so off to the Store for the Flags. Loaded up the Truck with the Flags, Weed Whippier and the Camera & off to the Grave sites. I cleaned the sites up and Placed a Flag or Two.
I did not post one Picture of another Veteran My Best Ronald Cernasuskas Ron’s head stone was not placed at this time. I did place the Flags on his Grave along with some White Castles boxes. Empty sorry Ron E Boy
