We're sharing this a little late, but to show our appreciation for the men and women who serve our country, Rodgers Townsend created t-shirts for a great group of veterans in Conroe, Texas. Designed by Kris Wright, they were given away on July 4th, before the annual parade.
The backstory begins with my parents support of LoneStar Honor Flight. For those unfamiliar with the National Honor Flight program, it's an organization that flies World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to witness firsthand the memorials created in their honor. Before the fifth and final flight, my family raised a 60-foot U.S. flag in front of their business. So it's been a natural gathering place-complete with a casual lounge and library-for veterans of all ages ever since.
The t-shirts went fast, but our patriotism endures. For every U.S. veteran, our most sincere thanks.
