Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6088 members Durwood Moore (second from left), junior vice commander, and Bob Paciocco (second from right), chaplain, join Walmart representatives John Scott (left) and Jessica Harper at an American “flag” made from stickies. Harper said the messages on the stickies were left by Walmart customers and employees to thank U.S. veterans and active-duty military personnel for their service to the nation. The “flag,” turned over to the VFW on Thursday, will be displayed at the VFW post’s next meeting. See some of the messages in the inset. (WDN Photo/Mike Voss)
