Flag for a Father
(2008-02-26)
(wgvu) - Jack Rasey was only four years
old when his father was killed while serving in the Army during
World War Two.
Even at age 67, Rasey still misses him greatly. He's unable to
shake the heartache that has lingered for more than six decades
since Private First Class Jack G. Rasey died from shrapnel wounds
sustained in Germany in 1945.
So in remembrance of his father, The Muskegon Chronicle reports
the younger Rasey recently purchased a 20-by-30-foot U.S. flag for
800 dollars and donated it to Muskegon County's Fruitport Township.
The township which flies it near the busy interchange of
Interstate 96 and U.S. Highway 131.
The enormous flag replaced one that had fallen victim to the
elements since being bought by the township shortly after the
September 11th terror attacks.
