To The Editor:

I would like to thank the staff from The Journal for their help for getting the attention that was needed to fly the flag again at the Robert C. McEwen Customs Building and to Mayor Bill Nelson for the city’s support.

The Robert C. McEwen Customs Building is a very important part of our city, and again, it being the oldest active federal building in use in the United States I could not believe that our government didn’t see the importance of flying the colors, even if it were to be worked on. That beautiful building deserves to have the flag flying at all times.

Remember that the veterans did the time, and we will protect our flag at any time or place. Thank you to the wonderful people of our city for your support on this matter.

Jerry Reed
