A True Flag Day Celebration

“This flag I make with all my heart, to appreciate and respect the country that saved my life and my family”      Vivian Huynh

These words began a presentation of a hand-made “Flag of a hundred prayers.” In a Flag Day event hosted by the Hot Springs Village American Legion and Knights of Columbus, Ms. Huynh presented the flag to Ken Mace, Director of the Veterans Re-Entry program at St. Francis House. Ms. Huynh, who immigrated her with her family in 1989, said: “I appreciate so much the freedom I enjoy here and am thankful for the Veterans and all branches of the military who protect that freedom.”

The event also included patriotic music by the Village Strings, posting the colors by the VFW/American Legion Honor Guard and readings on “What the Flag means to me” by youth from Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

We were so happy to see Ms. Huynh last Thursday night at the Hot Springs Village Knights of Columbus Social we had to get a picture of her with her flag!
