Lowe's store #1539 in Cheyenne recently donated aluminum flagpoles to the Pine Bluffs Veterans Memorial. Also attending were two active members of the U.S. Air Force.

Standing center point, out in front of the U.S. military branch flags, the American flag unfurled in the Wyoming breeze. While this flag is honored daily, she was honored more highly on Flag Day.

Members of the Donald Eisenhauer American Legion Post 60 raised the military flags in salute to "Our Flag" and our veterans at the Veterans Memorial square downtown Pine Bluffs. The flag poles were donated by Lowe's in Cheyenne. Citizens of Pine Bluffs and surrounding area gathered around the flag, and with hands over their hearts and hats removed they recited the "Pledge of Allegiance" .
