    Had an idea today.....

    In memory of all the victims of 9/11, and to show support of the many family members and friends who lost loved ones.

    To show pride in our american heritage and express our belief in freedom.

    I think that all snowplow operators should fly american flags
    off the top of the plow marker guides.

    How many young children always look at the "snowplow",
    if we would all do this, think of the message we could send..

    The small all-weather flags could be attatched very easily,with
    very little cost.

    Put mine on today, even though the plow sits in the shop!!!

    All our trucks have American Flags on the Fenders cost 1 dollar a piece for the flags when we got them from our lettering guy.

    I tried that last year, it lasted about 15 minutes, actually the tape and the stick lasted the flag ripped off.

    I do the same as Geoff, gives me year 'round exposure.

    The marker flags are a good idea, but I don't think they'd last very long. I had a Western a while back, they're plow guides come with Western flags, I think they lasted 2 storms.
