"To the Family of William Lopez-Feliciano,

I had the honor of seeing Mike Ehredt as he jogged through Nebraska this past Sunday. He is jogging across American placing flags in honor and memory of service members lost in Iraq. William's flag was placed on Hiway 30 between Hershey, NE and North Platte, NE. I would like to send his flag to a family member. Please contact me via e-mail at debbie@wallacehotel.net so we can make arrangements for me to send the flag to you.

Please know that I appreciate the sacrifice William and his family made for me and our country. I look forward to hearing from you.
