A new flag for a new year
Christmas is always the most wonderful time of the year. It was also a “special day” for the Singh family. After all the presents were opened, Sunjeet told his father and family members that there was one more present to see. We must go to the Bald Eagle Truck Stop, he said. Sunjeet’s father owns and manages the truck stop. When they arrived, Sunjeet took the family to the front of the store. Before their eyes was a shiny new flag pole and “Old Glory” flying proudly. Sgt. Terry and Carmen Banfill gave this present, as well as another, a framed American flag to the family. Terry and Carmen’s son, Sean, a special agent with the Department of State, donated the flag that had flown over the embassy in Iraq on one of his deployments. The Singh family thanked the Banfills for the wonderful gift and for all they do in the area to promote our flag and for what it stands for. From left are Sgt.
