I would like to publicly thank Frank Wood for his devotion and dedication to our country and community. A Vietnam veteran, Frank, for years, was responsible for placing our flag through town in honor of Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day and the Fourth of July.

Frank passed away last month. This week, I missed seeing the stars and stripes along Highway 101 in Newport, paying tribute to our lost soldiers.

Thank you, Frank.
