Veterans Center Flying High

The Veterans Service Office in Meridian is celebrating some additions that showcase the American flag better than ever.

Officials Monday raised a new flag donated by Woodmen of the World. And now it will be illuminated at night with the donation of lighting by Sequel Electric that was installed by Buckley Electric.

Veterans Service Officer Joseph Lemoine says the upgraded display is very meaningful to veterans and others.

"Every American should respect the flag and honor it and be proud of seeing it flying," said Lemoine.

The Veterans Service Office at 1827 23rd Avenue provides a myriad of services for veterans and their dependents. You may contact the office by calling 601-482-9811.
