Memorial service for "Flag Mama"

For a decade, Laura Froehlich, known as "Flag Mama," was at March Reserve Air Base whenever troops were departing for Iraq or Afghanistan or returning from those war zones. In her red, white and blue outfits, she dispensed hugs and good cheer. Her goal was to make sure the troops never felt the public indifference shown to Vietnam veterans like her father, a career soldier. See story
