Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

By: Eleanor Coerr

Hiroshima-born Sadako is lively and athletic-the star of her school's running team. And then the dizzy spells start. Soon gravely ill with leukemia, an aftereffect of the atom bomb that fell on her city when she was an infant, Sadako approaches her illness as she did her running-with irrepressible spirit. Recalling a Japanese legend, Sadako sets to work folding paper cranes. For the legend holds that if a sick person folds one thousand cranes, the gods will grant her wish and make her healthy again.

Honors Rendered

I had the opportunity to be in Hawaii Nov. 30 to Dec. 9th 2021, participating in the 80th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. During this time I escorted 41 Young Marines from the Pfc Bruce W Carter MEDAL OF HONOR Miami FL unit. I proudly ordered and received 15 Flags flown on December 7. 2021. These were presented to those Veteran's who have served and fought for our Country. Thank you for fulfilling my request in a timely manner, and the Certificates made these a personal gift which is honored by all..Semper Fidelis Gunny Lou Slagle USMC Ret

An Awesome Piece to my Pearl Harbor Collection

I love this canvas bag! It is super sturdy! And I can't wait to use it when I go to coffee shops to write!

Amazing gifts!!!

I was given a flag 6-7 years ago. For years I wondered how my friend got a flag from the USS Arizona memorial. After visiting the museum and seeing I could order flags, I have been giving these as gifts for family graduating boot camp, for birthdays, retirements, and any other special dates in the lives of service members and family members. These flags, given as gifts, are absolutely amazing.
