Gift of a flag

Glascock County Sheriff Jeremy Kelley’s 4-year-old daughter, Emma Faith, stands under the flag and flagpole dedication held by Woodmen Life Lodge 982 at the Sheriff’s Office recently. “Woodman strives to promote family, community and country,” Woodmen Life representative Wanda Davis said. “They recently relocated to a new building and they needed a flagpole and a flag and Woodmen wanted to make sure that that happened.” Sheriff Kelley said that his office considered it an honor to receive the pole and flag because of what it represents. “A flag is not a piece of cloth,” he said. “It means something. It is honor and courage and respect.”
