Posted on Patch by John H. Donohue, Peekskill American Legion Post 274: Let's all try to show the youth and others in our community how to honor and show respect for our glorious flag when it passes by in the July 4th parade.
Most of them are 90 years old and older but they still respect the flag and all who died defending it.
