Thank you for running the story about “Old Glory” flying of off the OC Dana Point Harbor in last week’s issue of the Dana Point Times. It is something I am very, very proud of.

I was a resident of Dana Point for 10 years when I put the flag out there in 2002, and for 11 years I have maintained it. Recently, I moved to San Clemente but I am only three miles from the Harbor, which I walk every morning.

When the flag was gone this last time I decided I was too old to replace it, as I will be 80 in January. I was honored when the Dana Point Yacht Club got in touch with me and said, “It has become an icon in Dana Point so we will partner with you to keep Old Glory Flying.”

This means it will be flying out there for many years to come.
