Santa Monica could be a city of national pride to all Americans and visitors to our shores. Crown our new park with the nation’s largest flag pole and flag that can be seen by passing ships far out at sea (“Turf war rages on over name of Tongva Park,” March 4). Dedicate our new “Memorial Park” to the many service men and women, military and civilian, defense workers from Santa Monica who served their country in its time of need. With the naming of our new park “Santa Monica Memorial Park,” the many visitors to our shores can see that we are all “Americans” with pride in our city and country.
