Ron Welch of Davis, a member of Yolo Military Families, stands by the flag he put up early in 2002. The flag has flown every day and night at Harrison Storage on Second Street in Davis since then. He has replaced it multiple times over the years and plans to do so until all American combat troops are home from Afghanistan, which should be by the end of this year.

Even with fewer APO addresses, Yolo Military Families continues to mail support boxes as they are requested. Since Nov. 1, 2013, the group has mailed 141 boxes, and 23 will be delivered to the USO in Southern Afghanistan by Armed Forces Day on Saturday, May 17.

Armed Forces Day is the day set aside by President Truman to honor all active-duty military personnel. “Yolo Military Families sends a grateful thank-you to the community for supporting us so we can continue to support our service members,” said spokeswoman Linda Smith.
