Bayshore Receives American Flag from Captain Matthew Shields

Bayshore Elementary School was presented with the American Flag by the family of Captain Matthew Shields.  For many years, Mrs. Debbie Gonzalez’s first grade class has sent letters and cards to Captain Matthew Shields and other members of his unit.  Captain Shields’ grandmother, Lauran Griffith (longtime Bayshore volunteer), presented a flag that was flown over Syria and Iraq in appreciation for the continuous support that the unit received.

PSLHS Color Guard honored Captain Shields’ family during a ceremony at Bayshore Elementary School.
