Patriotism in Shrewsbury

By Joyce DeWallace, Contributing Writer

Sh patriotism in Shrewsbury crShrewsbury – For the 4th of July, Shrewsbury resident Jared Kronlund decided to make a patriotic statement.? With the help of two friends, Dom Faiola and Jake Morgan, he made a template, got a bunch of cans of spray paint and proceeded to decorate his front lawn with a giant American flag.

“I was inspired by the songs, ‘Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue” and ‘American Soldier,’ both by Toby Keith.? I wanted to celebrate the 4th of July, show support for our troops, and my love of this country,” Kronlund said.

The young men are all going to be high school juniors at St. John's High School in Shrewsbury this fall. They met playing lacrosse and have “bonded like brothers,” according to Faiola.

“We wanted to do something for the 4th of July and the fact the USA was playing Belgium for the World Cup championship,” Morgan said.

Their joint efforts make a larger than life tribute to our country and our troops and certainly brighten up their neighborhood.
