American Legion Gives Flag to Greenwood
Former Greenwood Student Arranged the Ceremony
American Legion Joseph B. Westnedge Post 36 visited Greenwood Elementary School in November to present a new American flag to the school. The visit was also a civics lesson about the history of the flag and its meaning. Post members, who served in the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force, discussed their service and gave the children copies of “Our Country’s Flag,” a comic book that shows the Pine Tree Flag, the Gadsen Flag and other historic flags that served the country.
The visit was organized by former Greenwood student Kristine Lassitter. Other post members who visited the school were Jennifer Erwin, James Saur, Jake Rukli, David Sytsma and Tom Paccionne.
