American Veterans Post 26 in Lisbon, ND awarded Thomas Slagle and Julie Slagle the Patriotism Award.
The award is for displaying the American Flag properly. Members of AMVETS Post 26 give this award quarterly to business-es, organizations, and individuals who are flying the American Flag every day in the proper manner.
Thomas is a United States Navy Veteran that served in Vietnam. Thomas and Julie have the flag lighted at night for proper display.
The frame of the certificate was donated by Archie Hokana a World War II Veteran who also served in the Navy, and believes in this program.
AMVETS Post 26 hopes that others will take notice and be proud to fly their Ameri-can Flag properly.
