Using Flag Day as the occasion for dedication of a new flag pole and large U-S flag, a fund drive has been started to raise money to provide mobility devices for disabled veterans who struggle with walking. The flag dedication ceremony was Thursday morning at the Farmerís Bank of Northern Missouri in Trenton.

Raising the American flag were members of the 548th Transportation Company based at Trenton who returned home this spring from Afghanistan. Assisting were members of the V-F-W Post and Boy Scout Troop 99 at Trenton.

After the ceremony, Farmerís Bank Executive Vice President Jim Cox told us how long the bank will be accepting donations for the SegWays for Wounded Vets program:

The occasion marked the dedication of a new 12 by 18 foot U-S flag to be flown from a 60 foot pole at the front of the bank. Several members of the 548th Transportation Company of the National Guard unit based in Trenton raised the flag as Melissa and Michelle Gay of Trenton sang the national anthem.

Assisting with the outdoor ceremony were members of the Joseph L. Norton Post Veterans of Foreign Wars and Trenton Boy Scout Troop 99.

KTTN was there for a live broadcast of the event that included remarks from the Farmers Bank of Northern Missouri President and Chief Executive Officer David Tribble of Unionville:
