    I also wanted to publicly commend our local heroes at Sandy Spring VFD who sprang into action to voluntarily restore Old Glory at the local Chic-fil-A in Olney, MD this morning.

    Vandals had evidently cut the halyard rope prior to Patriot Day. A colleague and I were grateful to witness their resolute actions and quiet humility in honoring our fallen heroes on this solemn day.

    Thank you, Sandy Spring VFD, once again for demonstrating your sincere devotion and service to our county and our country.

    Best regards, -Robert DeFrank, Safety Specialist
