  • Although I do not have any children that go to Bossier High, I do drive by on occasion. Now, as a member of the Armed Forces, there is one thing that I hate to see. That is the American Flag tattered and torn and still being flown on the flag pole. Sadly, I must say that the flag flying outside your school is the worst flag I have ever seen. You can't even tell it is the American flag. I hope that you have enough pride in your school and more over your country to replace the flag with a new one. I'm sure that someone, somewhere would donate one if need be!
