Korean War Veteran Stops by to Deliver an Early Christmas Present

Korean War Veteran and friend Dave Bellamy stopped by our office unexpectedly today to deliver an early Christmas present

As Scott Wilson, soon to be VP of Collins Flags was walking into work today and he made a statement to our front desk manager about how our large flag was so beautiful against the backdrop of the sunrise.

Fast forward a couple hours to around 10:30 this morning.

A wonderful veteran by the name of Dave Bellamy stopped in to give us an early Christmas present. The gift was a photo. A photo of our 30′ x 60′ US flag with a gorgeous background. The same photo that he was describing this morning on his way in.

How about that for a coincidence?!

Mr. Bellamy is a true patriot who has made Marion his home all of this life. He is an entrepreneur who at one time owned 4 beauty salons here in town. It was an honor to meet you this morning, Mr. Bellamy.

We owe a HUGE thank you to Dave Bellamy for the beautiful photo, his unwavering kindness, and of course his service and dedication to our great country.

Scott says that he is blessed to be inheriting a new office, and this will be the first photo that will be hung on his wall. 


As the saying goes…great minds think alike!

Before Mr. Bellamy departed, the two of them took this photo together. Depicted in the photo is the image that brought them together on this day.

We have the coolest jobs in the entire world! We love this stuff!!




Thanks for reading!

We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
