Siesta Key Beach Florida USA
The flag at the home of Capt. Ralph Styles was at half-staff on Oct. 6. 2008
It was one of the few times in the past dozen or so years that Styles had not led the daily ceremonies to raise and lower the Stars and Stripes since he had erected the flagpole in the front yard of his ocean front Siesta Key home. The retired U.S. Navy captain had died Oct. 5 at the age of 98. We had all lost a friend in paradise that day.
