To The Herald-Whig:

The drive through the cemetery (Sunset) at the Illinois Veterans Home is so impressive. The new flags that line the driveway are beautiful. I was glad to see the tradition of having a flag on each grave continue after all.

It makes all of us feel better to honor those who gave so much for our country.

God bless America.
