Fly the flag, honor our veterans

Let's support the Memorial Day observance Monday starting at 10:30 a.m. just south of the Pleasanton Senior Center on Sunol Boulevard. The VFW, American Legion, Pleasanton Military Families and others hold this annual event to pay tribute not only to those who have sacrificed their lives in defense of our country, but also to the hundreds of Pleasanton veterans and those still on active duty in the military from our community, many in harm's way in Afghanistan. Early Monday, the Scouts will place flags on veterans buried at Pioneer and St. Augustine Catholic cemeteries, also on Sunol Boulevard just south of the Senior Center. It's another place for families to visit to honor the fallen.
