From Wednesday, September 22 through Sunday, September 26, Meridian Trust Federal Credit Union's three branches in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and with their Wellington, Colorado branch in will fly flags in an eloquent display.

You can honor the heroes you know by sponsoring one or more flags in their honor. You can pay tribute to an active service member, a veteran, a first responder, an essential worker, or the personal hero in your life.

Each flag in the display will have a story. To tell your hero's story you can sponsor a flag for $50. The flag will include an Honoree Tag which will include their name and a little about their story.
