I can't think of anyone in our VFW Post who has done more than Al Hoste. Just a few days ago, we proudly finished his "Flag Project," now better known as the Osage County Flag Memorial seen by all who pass the Linn Public Cemetery as they come in to Linn. He had a dream and he made it happen. That is just one example of how this man was never one to give up or to quit before the job was done. And who else have we known lately that served in World War II, in the Korean Conflict and two tours in Vietnam! Thanks, Al, for all you have done for VFW Post 4756 and for your many years of service to The United States Army.
