Neighborhood Salutes Vets




Neighbors living in a cul-de-sac in the Minshall Park neighborhood in midtown-south Tulsa annually paint a look-alike of the U.S. flag on their street in remembrance of American veterans. From left are Rick Bahlinger, Nick Ede and Jim Heatherman. The neighbors started the tradition in the early 2000s when one of Heatherman’s sons was returning from duty in the Middle East. Heatherman, a Vietnam veteran and a former U.S. Marine officer, has four sons. Three of his sons are also U.S. Marine officers, and the fourth works for the U.S. Department of Defense.
