A 4th of July Tradition
By Gazette Staff Writer — Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014
Every 4th of July Troop Real Estate agent Cindy Diaz-Telly places an American flag in the front yard of every home in the Riverwalk tract. 2014 will be her 13th year of putting out flags. Cindy started the tradition when both her son and daughter were gone in military service to their country. Every year since she has had a son, daughter, nephew, or nieces gone in service and war zones during this time of year. She considers it a ‘sweet reminder’ to remember the troops serving. This year both her nephew Mitchell Renteria and her niece Diana Renteria are gone in service. Both are Marines. He is in North Carolina, she is in Afghanistan.
