WoodmenLife Makes Donation to SAC Museum
In support of its ongoing commitment to patriotism, WoodmenLife, one of the largest distributors of American flags, second only to the U.S. Government, has donated 22 American flags to the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum in Ashland, NE.
The flags, two 20 x 30 ft. and twenty 5 x 8 ft., now fly on the 11 poles of the museum’s “Flag Row,” with the larger on “Flag Hill” overlooking Interstate 80. American Legion Post 129 in Ashland ceremoniously retired the previous flags and raised the new flags on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
The ceremony was conducted by Clayton Anderson, SAC Museum CEO & President, US Astronaut, retired; and Patrick L. Dees, WoodmenLife President & CEO. In addition to the flags, WoodmenLife also contributed a monetary donation.
“These donations are a part of an ongoing partnership between WoodmenLife and the SAC Museum,” said Dees. “We’re lucky to have such an impressive facility so close to the Omaha metro, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to offer our support to them.”
