I had to get a picture of the flags today. Another Pekin soldier lost his life last week. He was brought home yesterday and his funeral will be on Monday. I didn't know this young man, however, our community has shown their support with these flags. A retired individual has donated his time and asks for local volunteers to place the flags along the street. This time, there were more than 8 miles of flags from the edge of town, through town to the funeral home, down Court street and past Pekin High School all the way to the cemetary.
