WWII hero and EagleCrest resident raises flag

Flag Day was established as a celebration of the birthday of the American flag. In honor of this day we share a video featuring WWII Veteran and EagleCrest resident Neil Skilldum. Neil was nominated to raise the flag at a Twins major league baseball game during the singing of the National Anthem.

As a WWII Veteran, Neil has a special reverence for the flag. He shared, “It is an honor to raise the flag. The flag means everything to me; it’s a symbol of our country and it’s what we were fighting for.”
