Flag of Honor – Iraq & Afghanistan, 143rd Air National Guard
My name is Katie Jacquard. I am a member of the 143rd Air National Guard in Rhode Island. I bought one of your flags and thought that you might appreciate this photo.
This year, part of my unit has been deployed all over the middle east in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. We fly C-130’s and have seen a lot this year throughout Iraq and Afghanistan. I recently got home from being deployed. I flew the Flag of Honor with me everyday and plan on continuing to do so, even if it is not in Iraq or Afghanistan.
I think what you have done is very honorable and want you to know how much I appreciate it. There is not a day that goes by that i do not think about 9-11. It is an honor and a privilege to do what i do and to fly the flag of honor.
Thank you for what you have done…Freedom is not free.
