New Flagpole at the Veterans Memorial

Brian Miller, owner of Arctic Lights Electric, holds a chalk line for 93 year old World War II Navy Seabee veteran Louis Palmer to check the plumb of the 60 foot flagpole that will fly the American Flag into place at the Anchorage Park Strip Veterans Memorial on Thursday, August 30, 2013. Anchorage Pioneer Home resident Palmer has been keeping an eye on the project since it started. The new flag pole is part of the renovation project started after the old wood flag pole toppled in a wind storm on September of 2012.
