Letter from I-95 Flag Supporter:
"To the heroic Virginia Flaggers,
I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to your for every effort
you make on behalf our heritage and people. Every few days I see
something new about your work and your courage. As a fellow Virginian,
my heart aches to be with you. The time is drawing near when I shall
return to our beloved Commonwealth, and at that time I hope to be
able to aid you with my own volunteer service. Until then, please
accept this cheque in the spirit that it is given: the deepest love for
our beautiful Virginia and the bond of brotherhood which unites us. I
only regret that I cannot presently send more.
May God bless and protect each an every one of you. You are all in my heart and prayers."
