August 1, 2017 Weekly Report

If you’re wired into social media, the internet, 24-hour cable news or talk radio, you would think the only things coming out of Washington, D.C. this year are President Trump; Russia; controversy; investigations; protests; anger; and gridlock.

For the thousands of Iowans fighting this silent battle, this month is especially for them.

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE

A few days before Memorial Day, in cemeteries across the United States, a tradition takes place – one small American flag at a time. The final resting place of the men and women who served this great nation, a number of them who died in their service, all have a small American flag placed at their headstone.
