Stevens – Henry Burl Stevens Jr. and Patriotism

American Flag

Patriotism has many faces. My father, Henry Burl Stevens Jr (1924 – 1997), served in World War II as did many men of his age and he carried his deep patriotism throughout his life. According to his sister, Barbara Mary Stevens McKay, he once refused to allow a woman to board his Greyhound bus (he was a driver) because she had an American flag sewn across her tush. I never knew that about him until she filled me in last year but I don’t have any trouble believing it.
