When homeowners in a patriotic Richardson neighborhood woke up on July 5, they found what many described as America at its worst. Days later, an Army Sergeant helped them see it at its best.
On Friday, John Partlow grasped his American flag and shook his head. “It’s just a disgrace,” the Richardson grandfather said. “It makes me mad.”
During the week of Independence Day, family members of veterans buried at the Woodland Park Cemetery are still lamenting a city ordinance that limits the dates they can place an American flag alongside their loved one’s headstone.
