Although, after our most recent military shooting, in Chattanooga, which resulted in the loss of five service members, there is one last thing I ask and encourage every business owner in Oceanside to do – and that is to fly an American Flag.
I cannot express how much little acts of kindness, support, and appreciation for what our service members do means to a military family. They repeatedly experience countless moves, deployments, new friends, new schools, and loss of comrades. They rely on the support of other military families and the community in which they live to overcome these struggles. So know, any way in which you show your appreciation is not taken for granted – but if you are currently not flying a flag outside your business take a moment to realize how much such a small gesture can mean.
