This story struck a chord with me. This is a piece I shot, wrote and edited all by myself and was very proud of the overall product. Next June, alongside hundreds of others, there will be flag in honor of my grandfather, Thom Bernard Bondus Jr. That was one of my gifts to my father this Christmas. Here's a link to buy a flag if you'd like to get one in honor of a veteran or first responder you know
