Just a few years ago, I was looking through some old family photos.I saw a photo taken in the 1940's that I did not remember, of my mom sitting on the front porch steps of her father's house.In the background, attached to the inside of the screen door, and viewed from the outside, was a square flag that contained a centered star. Now, I was 52 years old, and my husband was 59 years old at that time.I asked my husband, "What does the star represent?He said, "I don't know."Well, sometime later we were visiting the county museum in Henderson, NV, which has a wonderful display of period homes---and in the 1940's house was the square flag with a star!!!I went to the information counter and asked about it.I was told it represented a family with military personnel during WW II!That is when I became aware of the flag.
It is nice to know people remember and share the details.
