Maybe this flag idea will stick

Fourth of July was a beautiful day, with largest crowd I can remember for the parade and park get together. Every body was in good spirits, with lots of sacks of goodies being passed out, but I had one disappointment with the hundreds of flags given away. I had a hole in the top of my cap so I could display mine, but hundreds went undisplayed. A thought came into my mind after the parade that with the enormous amount of money it costs to put on a program this size maybe something could be done. Frequently on the front of the newspapers I get, there are stick-on advertisements. As a lifetime member of the VFW, from Korea, it might be possible to all the veteran groups to team up and purchase stick-on flags and I am confident that 99 percent of the children would put them on and most adults.
