What do ya’ say

Just had a gold star couple come in the shop looking for a flagpole on which they want to fly a USMC flag along with the US flag.  Their son was killed two weeks ago in Afghanistan two months into his fifth tour.  

Man, what do ya say, what can ya say.  I offered our condolences professionally and personally but whats that really mean.  Sometimes even in a simple job like this, selling flags, reality strikes home.


  1. ….is appropriate and enough, but wasn’t this increasingly likely to happen:

    two months into his fifth tour.

    This death could have been prevented if Obama had any kind of wisdom.
