Darien VFW places 1,400 flags for veterans
DARIEN – To a veteran, the American flag always will mean more than 50 stars and 13 stripes.
It symbolizes what they fought for, the brothers in arms they lost and the sacrifice they made for their country. Last week, the Downers Grove VFW and Darien Memorial VFW posts joined together with local Boy Scouts, including those from Troop 97, to install 1,400 flags at Clarendon Hills Cemetery in Darien.
“Those kids were the ones that hustled more than us old men,” said World War II veteran Ed Oldis.
