A thank you letter from: Daniel E. Helix

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.
