This year's commemorative medallion
This year we are happy to feature Olivia on our commemorative 2020 medallion seen reading Hero names on medallions hung from our flags. Olivia’s picture was sent to us by her Grandmother, Cindy Cunningham. Oliva’s parents are Megan and John Nehrbas. John served 3 tours in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom & Enduring Freedom from 2002-2007. John is also one of the founders of a local group called American Flag Guardians who help Veterans in our community and promote pride in the flag, as well as flag etiquette. Cindy stated, “we are a very thankful military family and truly honor our heroes.”
