    School Gets Flags, Thanks to Legion

    Some students wanted to say the Pledge of Allegiance but the classrooms had no American flags.

    Nassau County American Legion came through with 35 flag sets, and Past County Commander Reggie Butt delivered them to Barry Tech, a Nassau BOCES educational center in Westbury.

    “This is something the American Legion does,” said Butt, noting that the request for flags went to National Headquarters, which forwarded it to Barbara Kerr at Department headquarters who in turn passed it on to Nassau County Legion.
