GUILDERLAND — Scott LoBaido travels the country painting American flags in tribute to those who protect his freedom.

This week, he painted a three-dimensional mural on the brick wall of Town ‘N’ Country Lanes, on Western Avenue, to honor Major General Harold J. Greene, who was shot and killed in Afghanistan in August.

The mural features the shadow of Major General Greene, saluting, in the center of the flag.

When the owner of the bowling alley, Jack Scaccia, saw the finished product, he had tears in his eyes.
