Jeep and flags

A 1973 military jeep takes its place among the flags and crosses that will be displayed starting on Nov. 7 as part of American Legion Post 44’s effort to honor veterans.

The American Legion has sold more than 150 flags and crosses to be displayed this Veterans Day.

American Legion Post 44 Commander Ray Cobb said the milestone is significant, and he would like to see the support continue.

“We will be taking donations for these flags and crosses between now and Sept. 30.” he said, adding that an $85 donation will sponsor a deceased veteran who served in the military.

It may be a family member, a friend or a veteran who no longer has family members living in the area.

Forms may be picked up at Moore-Cortner Funeral Home, Grant Funeral Services, WZYX Radio in Cowan or by calling Cobb at 931-308-8914.

The deadline for ordering a cross and flag to be displayed during this year’s Veterans Day is Sept. 30.
