We saw a lot of American flags on the Fourth of July. The Stars and Stripes flew over the U.S. Capitol, hung from the porches of family homesteads and were worn on the T-shirts of parade-goers around the country. Icons of the flag appeared everywhere online and in the corners of your TV screen.
Dear Sgt Shaft: My name is Carol H. I contacted you some time back seeking assistance in proving my case that my husband, Ralph Huey, actually served in Vietnam and was exposed to Agent Orange. He died very young from lung cancer. I just wanted to let you know that on March 30, 2011, I appeared in person in Washington, D.C., to present my case. I just received notification last week that I had won. I am so grateful.
