Travis W. Overstreet Sr. gets very upset when he sees an American flag flown in a disrespectful way — that is a flag that is obviously torn or frayed. He gets upset to the point that he took Town Council to task, right after Memorial Day, because a number of the flags placed in holders on lamp posts in Centertown were frayed.
Overstreet has seven military veterans in his family. His father was a Marine who served in World War II and Korea. He served in the Marine Corps in Vietnam, in the 1st Marine Division.
