The giant American Flag is once again flying just south of Coushatta. Luke Mitchell and Ricky Swayze raised the colors last Friday afternoon. The flag was destroyed by a tornado that ripped through the area about a year ago.
Swayze reported that in addition to the flag being heavily damaged by the storm, several of the attaching clips had been damaged also. Mitchell and Swayze made repairs and Old Glory is now waving in the spring breezes.
The flag marks the location of Red River Storage on Highway 71 at Esperanza Road. The climate controlled storage facility recently opened. It had been in the planning and construction stages for the last two years.
