    Money could have been better spent assisting addicted, traumatized and/or homeless veterans. Flag waving has no real benefit for them.

      Money “could be better spent” in many ways. So why spend money on anything showy like diamond rings, necklaces, fancy cars, lawn care, art, etc?  The reason for spending money on  symbols, such as flags,  is because they help unite people, usually for a good cause. If social unity is not a worthy pursuit in your mind, then I don’t know what else is.

      That said, it wouldn’t surprise me either if Greta Martin donates a good deal of her money to “assisting addicts, traumatized and/or homeless people”, many of whom are primarily responsible for their own miserable situation. People like Greta Martin who donate usually do so from the goodness of their hearts.

      Another Fort Kent native, Phil Soucy, deserves much credit for initiating and seeing the Main St. flag project through completion. It might not have happened without his dedication.

      Thank you Phil and Greta besides all of you who gave financial support.

      I appreciate the patriotism, a gesture of thanks, of awareness.  I love the USA.   downandeast  can donate their 15k to their cause.
