There are new American and POW flags flying on the big flagpole south of Coushatta. Members of VFW Post 7287 and Auxiliary 7287 hoisted the flags this week.
That flagpole had been empty following a storm that damaged the flags that were on the pole. This month the VFW reached agreement with Red River Storage to replace the flags and maintain them.
Next time you are headed south on US 71 notice that our flag is again flying on the tallest flagpole around.
