Do you have an old American flag? 

The Peoria Fire Department is now offering a solution to residents while partnering to honor our Veterans.  This new program that is lead by Retired Peoria Fire Captain John Davirro will collect flags from fire stations and deliver them to Heritage Funeral Home.  There the flags will be used to cover the caskets of Veterans who are being cremated, making sure both the Veteran and the flag are properly honored.

Drop-off boxes are located just inside the front lobby doors of the stations and will be available to the public everyday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.


Remember a Veteran, Thank a Veteran



When we celebrate our birthdays, it’s a reminder of our years on earth and to reminisce about the past year or years. Our mothers always seem to remember the actual birth and how much trouble and how hard the birth was.  Of course, being a male I cannot presume what that was like, nor do I wish that I could.  Some births are easy and others are hard and take a long time.  That’s like the birthday we celebrate on the 4th of July each year, the birth of our nation.  It certainly was not an easy birth.  There were many sacrifices and it was a struggle.  Now as we remember the time past, we can see just how great our nation has become from that hard fought birth.

Unfortunately, history is soon forgotten and too many of our schools do not give this subject much attention.  The fourth of July is a holiday to many and little more than that.  Our job as citizens it to always keep the memory of how we have come to be such a free society, and especially the many sacrifices of our veterans who fought for our freedoms every year since our countries birth, all 240 years.

Our country has many problems but we have the freedom to discuss and debate those issues, not so in many countries of the world.  Then again at 239 years old we are just a teenager going through adolescence. 

So as you watch the fireworks displays this fourth, remember the words of the Star Spangled Banner:  

“And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that Star - Spangled Banner yet wave”.  

This represents just one of the labor pains of our nation’s birth.

Happy Birthday America.
