WTRF) – One local city park was honored by the Fort Henry Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.
The City of Benwood received a Flag Commendation for its highly visible display of the flag at the city park.
The flag was dedicated in November of 2017.
The Sons of the American Revolution give this honor every year to those who follow the U.S. Flag Code.
The code outlines the customs and rules that govern the display of the flag.
Benwood Mayor Ed Kuca and Police Chief Frank Longwell accepted the award on behalf of the city.
“We are delighted to have such a flag. Our community has always been patriotic. This is a symbol of our appreciation of the men and women that gave us the right to do this,” said Longwell.
“It’s a symbol to honor our military and our freedom. I’m just so happy that the city received this award,” said Ed Kuca.
“This flag was installed in November and we thought it’s a new flag, but they have done a great job and it should be recognized,” said John Hargleroad with the Sons of the American Revolution Flag Committee.
Previous winners include Oglebay, Elmhurst, the City of Wheeling, and Perkins Restaurant and Bakery.
