OS91 neighbor, Roberto Sanchez, Purple Heart Recipient,  
raises U.S. Flag for the first time
Ed and Mary Ganster have been blessed to have a neighbor who is a Purple Heart Recipient from the Vietnam War. Roberto Sanchez, a friend and helper of OS91, was greatly inspired as Ed and Mary had their Flagpole installed in early June and after their Flag Raising Ceremony on Flag Day, June 14th, decided to install a Flagpole on his beautiful property.

Roberto made this a family and friend Event and even enlisted the help of his grandchildren, nieces and nephews to raise the U.S. Flag, teaching them how to do it properly.
