FLORENCE (FOX19) -- Gateway VETS’ Restore the Glory flag replacement program has replaced its first flag.
The program is part of Gateway Community and Technical College’s outreach to military veterans. The new flag was raised Nov. 25 at Prince of Peace School in Covington.
“Our U.S. flag honors those who have fought to protect it and is a reminder of the sacrifice of our nation’s founders and heroes,” said Sister Mary Suzanne, principal of Prince of Peace School. “We are proud to receive a new flag to announce to all who pass by that we are honored to fly the US flag.”
“Since announcing the program Nov. 4, Gateway VETS has already received about a dozen requests to replace worn U.S. flags with new ones that have flown over the state capitol in Frankfort,” said U.S. Navy veteran Chris Courtney, who currently serves as retention and placement strategist for the Gateway Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS).
