Patriotic Paul's store is on owned by a veteran, so I thought what a great store to put on here on Veteran's Day.  The store is located on Main Street, Macedon, New York.  First two pictures are of the store sign and the building.  When you enter the store and turn left, you will see pictures of those who are serving or have served in all military sources.  If you bring your picture, you son's or daughter's pictures, your father's picture - anyone you know the is in service or was-Paul will proudly hang it on the wall.  Also, below are two World War II pictures.  One shows how many left for the way from New York State and the second shows how many came back.  Many more left than came back.  Below is the coat and hat given by a lady to this collection.  She told Paul that her husband had passed away and she was getting up in years.  They had no children and wanted to know if Paul would want it for his store and keep it.  Of course Paul says yes.  There are more museum items, than I have on pictures of.  Next on the right side of the store are items for sale.  He has clothes and items for all branches of the United States Military for sale.  He has cups, caps, clothes, flags and more Don't forget Christmas is coming.  The last picture is of his military on the lower left and 911 at the top.  He was working on the plumbing of one of the World Trade Centers when they planes flew into them.  A friend of his had his cell phone that could also take pictures.  When the both got out of the building, he told his friend to keep taking pictures.  While his friend was taking pictures, he was helping people out of building.  These pictures were taken before the press got there, emergency vehicles, etc. arrived.  Then some were taken as the buildings fell and after they fell.  I would like to get a copy of some of those pictures to put on here for 911 next year.  This is a store - there is no charge to enter.  This is a very unusual store to see.
