With the nation reeling, Greene wanted to do something to help. She grabbed a flag and began waving it. Motorists honked their approval. The simple patriotic act played out weekly over the years in Freeport, Maine.
A crowd showed appreciation Wednesday. Seventy-seven-year-old Navy veteran Paul Loveless drove down from Brunswick, saying it was the least he could do to support the women who came out “in rain, snow, sleet, freezing cold.”
Three women who’ve been waving the Stars and Stripes each week since the 9/11 attacks are folding up their flags in Freeport, Maine.
The tradition started after the terrorist attacks 18 years ago.
