Oliver's will fly flag that connects home and troops in Afghanistan on July 4

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, Oliver's Candies, military.


Bonnie Battaglia and John Quincey of Oliver's Candie's on West Main Street stand in the store with a certificate and flag that flew over Afghanistan.

The flag was presented to Oliver's by Bonnie's nephew, Matthew Graber, who was an Army Ranger in Afghanistan. It was a "thank you" for all the candy Oliver's sent to Graber and his comrades while serving in Afghanistan.

Graber is the son of Gary and Linda Graber of Darien and Shirley and Fred Ingles of Warsaw. He's currently stationed in South Africa.

The flag will fly over Oliver's on Fourth of July weekend.

"We're proud of the troops," Quincey said. "We're proud of what they do, so we're happy to support them."
