SHELBY COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - For the past few days, a Shelby County teen full of the American spirit has been going around his neighborhood showing that spirit in a unique way.
15-year-old Pierce Griffith is putting up over 200 American flags on mailboxes around the Highland Lakes subdivision to show his support for veterans. He got the idea after talking with his grandfathers who are veterans.
This experience has led to Pierce meeting many of his neighbors who are vets. It's something he hopes won't end with his generation.
"If our generation doesn't love America then the next generation might not. It's not weird or different to love America that everyone should," Griffith said.
