Standing for the flag

Members of the Sunnyside Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Sunnyside American Legion raise a new American Flag at Sunnyside Assisted Living Monday during a remembrance of the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center twin towers in New York. The residents cited the Pledge of Allegiance as the flag rose. After a 21-gun salute and taps for the fallen Americans, U.S. Army Korean War veteran Robert Cook led the residents singing God Bless America. He drove ambulance in Korea and sang in an Army quartet.
