Driving through Chandler yesterday, I saw an awesome display honoring those military service men and women who have given their life to protect our freedoms that we enjoy today. The simple field of flags was an amazing site. Watching them fly in the wind as I sat at the signal light at Hwy. 31 and FM 315 was though provoking.
