James McKeon, a 54-year member of The American Legion in Beaver Cove, Maine, has been passing out U.S. flags at the local Fourth of July parade for the last 10 years. He said that thanks to generous donors, he and other members of Cecil R. Cole Post 94 will help past out 3,600 small flags for the parade on July 4.
“May she proudly fly for many more years!” McKeon said about Old Glory.
