‘He just loved it’: An interest in flags is bringing these neighbors together

Sam Boje knows a thing or two about flags. He noticed that the flag pole in his neighbor, Barbara Miller’s yard hadn’t flown a flag in a few years.”The flag pole has really, basically for the last three years or so just been a flag pole there and I didn’t know how to take it down or want to take it down,” Miller said. “We’ve always had a flag there until he passed away four years ago…and I wasn’t really wanting to mess with putting the flag up and down every day.”Taking matters into his own hands, Sam started to raise a flag for Miller every morning.Sam’s interest in flags really sparked when he started learning about them towards the end of his 5th-grade year. And that’s when he started sharing what he learned with Miller. While nothing can bring Russ back, Miller knows his memory will always be honored, all thanks to Sam.”Russ would be so tickled that the flag is flying again because he just loved it,” she said.”If you know your neighbor, then you know someone that will help you out if something happens,” Sam said.Eventually, Sam said he wants to collect a flag from every country.
