GRANTSVILLE VFW MEMBERS - "I have been to places you wouldn't believe. Places with names that sounded strange...but then they became familiar. Such places as a hell-hole called Guadalcanal, the bloody beaches of Iwo Jima, Omaha Beach, Wake Island and a place called Bataan where I was involved in something called the Bataan Death March." - Vern Miller

The local VFW planted new flags in the region for nearly a decade.

More flags are flying around Sunny Cal through an effort of the VFW Post 5959 in Grantsville in 2007.

This past week the veterans erected flags at the St. Paul and Bryner Chapel cemeteries.

"We hope to honor our old soldiers buried in dozens of Calhoun cemeteries and honor our country, with the flag flying as folks visit and drive by," said Victor Whytsell.
