Flags in Stow have been ordered to be at half staff, including the one by the Doughboy statue, in honor of the Stow soldier who was killed May 2 in Afghanistan.
The Doughboy — we drive by the statue at City Hall nearly every day, but how often do we really stop to reflect on its importance and what it represents? The plaque underneath the bronze reproduction of the Sentry reads: "Dedicated to those who have served our country. Their memory lives on forever and we shall never forget." In honor of Second Lt. David Rylander, I dedicate this photo to his life of service and selflessness. We shall never forget your sacrifices. Thank you. Click here for funeral and procession information.
