During this time, he was struck by his students’ lack of knowledge about the American flag. That is why he developed this presentation.

Reeve lives in Ocala where he is a member of the U.S. Military Vets Motorcycle Club. David is married and has three daughters. He describes himself as, “Just a vet that loves his country and its flag.”
