and final farewell to a deceased American from the people In the early 1920s the Veterans of Foreign Wars the American Legion and the American Disabled Veterans established in the state of Texas their post and chapter in communities counties and towns In it they started honoring the veterans who belong to their posts by having the American flag and the Post or Chapter flag in the funeral homes to honor their deceased veterans They have carried this tradition from what was done in the early wars of the United States However in later years only the veterans who belonged to their post were displaying their flags and a veteran who did not belong to a veteran organization did not have any flags other than the American flag that is on the casket In order for us to eliminate this problem I asked six veteran organizations to donate three American flags and three Texas flags to be used in the three funeral homes here in New Braunfels In conjunction I asked the three funeral homes if they can provide the American and Texas flags for their own chapels and we provide the flags for the viewing rooms The director of Zoeller Funeral Home and the director of Morales Funeral Home will buy the flags as soon as they finish remodeling their funeral homes So in the very near future this respect and honor of every veteran will be completed No longer will the School districts plan fair to ease move from school to work The Comal Independent School District and the New Braunfels Independent School District will hold the first Community Resources Awareness Fair from 10 to 8 Nov 12 at the New Braunfels Civic Center The fairs objective is to help students in the transition to the community postsecondary education or the local work force About 80 federal state and local service agencies postsecondary educational institutions and businesses will be represented at the fair next of kin have to borrow the flags from other sources On several occasions two veterans were being mourned at the same time now the flags will be there all the time I am yeryprpud of our twp funeral 7On I would like to thank VFW Post 11050 and Post 7110 the American Legion Post 35 and Post 179 the American Disabled Veterans Chapter 163 and the Veterans for Christ Tree of Life Fellowship Church If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to call me and I will be glad to providemore information on this tradition that was absent for more than 50 years in Comal County We have veterans and of those only belong to veterans organizations But every veteran deserves the respect and
