Iowa 80 Trucking Museum Dedicates Flag During Ceremony Earlier This Afternoon
Iowa 80 Trucking Museum held a Flag Dedication ceremony today at 1:30 PM at the museum. The 25’ x 40’ U.S. Flag is now flying proudly on the Museum’s newly installed 100-foot tall flagpole. It is the largest known flag in the Quad City Area.
American Legion Post 548 of Walcott, Iowa, performed the official ceremony. The flag was presented to Carolyn Moon and Delia Moon Meier. Delia Moon Meier also spoke of the reason for the newly installed flag. “We dedicate this flag today in honor of my father, our employees, professional truck drivers and all others who have served and those who continue to serve in the U.S. Military. We are proud to be able to live and work in a land where freedom is still valued and protected, said Meier”
The flag and flagpole were donated by the Iowa 80 Truckstop to the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum in honor of all of the men and women who have served and continue to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces.
