On April 7, 2010, MyBlueStarFlag.com received a request for a Blue Star Flag from Maj. John L. Gardner (USMC). His story touched all of us – we knew we needed to find a way to get a flag from our office in Kansas City to his family in Virginia. Our very own Christine Shelly, executive vice president of marketing & communications at Grantham University, paid a visit to the Gardner home and personally delivered the flag, making it well worth the trip.

Excerpt from Letter:

“I ordered this flag for my wife of four months…by the time I get back [from deployment], we will have been apart for seven out of eight months of our marriage. If there is any way you could expedite the delivery of her flag, I would really appreciate it. She has done so much for this country by her sacrifices for me. This flag is really a way for me to honor her dedicated service.”

JOHN L. GARDNER
Major, USMC
