(KTVI)-Bryan Ritchey, a St. Charles County Eagle Scout candidate, has made it his goal to erect a monument to honor the members of all five branches of our military, both past and present, for their bravery, dedication, service, and sacrifice. The monument is to be erected in from of the Dardenne Prairie, MO city hall.

But monuments aren’t cheap. The estimated cost of his project: $20,000. To earn that, he is selling memorial flags. The flags are made in America and each one is dedicated to a soldier who lost his or her life while serving. On an attached yellow ribbon, the flags have their name, branch, rank, hometown, and the date and age they paid their ultimate sacrifice for our country. He is asking for a minimum $5 per flag.
