The Diablo Valley Flag Brigade is one of the most dedicated, tireless and selfless patriotic organizations in the Bay Area. Bryan Welden and his crew have not missed a Welcome Home that I can remember in years. They have a passion for veterans that is seldom seen outside the gates of active military installations. I am proud to have served with them in their efforts to serve those who serve us and cannot express my gratitude strongly enough, as a veteran, as to my personal respect and appreciation for the way they communicate the love and gratitude of a grateful nation for our returning vets as they endeavored to maintain the fight for freedom of all of us here at home.
