The VFW, American Legion, Marine Corps League, Vietnam Veterans of America, and about any other veterans service organization I know of will do the same thing, as what happened on Pocatello's campus, for any space for free. Each year these groups donate millions of dollars worth of time, and money, into civic projects.
And they force no one to do anything. Just a bunch of us old guys attempting to keep the symbol of our country aloft. I don't think we condemn any of you for your belief nor do we ask that you participate. It's our social donation in the name of those we believe fell for our freedoms. And we don't even ask that you agree with that.
And yes that cam is of my one of my old alma maters at Pocafella. 1969 - vo-tech - Machine Shop.
Rapaire moved there a year or so ago and is a welcome addition to our fine state. Although I've not met him personally I've certainly enjoyed his moderated and well thought out posts here.
