Message From Jimmy

I had just received my POW-MIA flag and put it up.Picking up the morning paper,I read that Staff Sergeant James K. Caniford was being interred in Arlington National Cemetery today.He was briefly my neighbor before he joined the Air Force.Jimmy was shot down while on a mission over Laos in 1972.For decades,he was listed as missing in action.Recently,they managed to locate and identify his remains.Was it a coincidence that I flew that flag for the first time on the day of his burial? I think that was a message from Jimmy:"I am home now,but don't forget the many others who aren't."
