Over the Memorial Day holiday, the Iowa 80 Truck Stop honored those who have served our country in a flag dedication ceremony.
On May 23, with the help of veterans from the American Legion Post 548, an official flag dedication ceremony was held.
The 25’x40′ flag was presented to Carolyn Moon and Delia Moon Meier.
“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. 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,” the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum states.
“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,” Delia Moon Meier
