Marshfield flag tradition returns for Independence Day

MARSHFIELD Wis. (WSAU) -- The return of an Independence Day tradition is keeping the streets of Marshfield Red, White, and Blue for the Fourth of July again this year.

Residents are finding small American Flags in every yard in the city, and organizer Phil Hiller from Hillers True Value Hardware says, “It’s been a good thing, a fun thing for us to do, to honor the service men and women, and to remember the true meaning of Independence Day.”

Hiller says the patriotic tradition takes the help of a virtual army of volunteers. A 4”x6” printed card is attached to every flag thanking God for our freedom and for the men and women who fight to keep us free.
