Travels With A Peace Flag
Lou Pumphrey writes about his travels with a peace flag, in full dress uniform
A drafted Vietnam veteran (First Infantry Division, 1967-68), Pumphrey is a member of Chapter 39 of Veterans for Peace, based at a Cleveland Heights church. He lives in Shaker Heights.
…from the Republican National Convention in Cleveland two years ago.
To backtrack a bit from mentioning my favorite reminiscence: I was VERY happy to read a report in The Plain Dealer in July, 2014 that the powers that be in the Republican Party chose Cleveland over Dallas as the site for the 2016 convention. The reason is obvious to those aware of my passion for peace. I knew having the convention here would be a wonderful opportunity to promote peace on a global scale. (The PD later reported 15,000 journalists from around the world were in Cleveland to cover the convention.)
