Heather Kennard, an auxiliary member of Brandywine Hundred Fire Company and Senior Master Sergeant with the Delaware Air National Guard was deployed from January 2020 through August of 2020 as the 386th Maintenance Operations Flight Superintendent. While every deployment comes with its own challenges, Heather was leaving behind her husband and (2) young twin sons. During Heather's deployment she was awarded the Air Force Meritorious Service Medal for her great accomplishments.

Upon Heather's return she presented an American Flag to our auxiliary. The American Flag on its own is a powerful symbol which represents pride and freedom. This particular flag that was presented to Brandywine Hundred Fire Company Auxiliary along with a certificate that reads as follows:

"To all who read this, let it be known that this United States Flag was flown on a mission to an undisclosed location on 27 April - 28 April 2020 aboard an MQ-9 Reaper tail #A4069. This mission was flown in support of Operation Inherent Resolve to find an destroy those who threaten our country and our allies. This flag is presented to Brandywine Hundred Fire Company Auxiliary for outstanding support to the nation, our veterans and our brothers and sisters in arms".

This special U.S. Flag along with the certificate is in a custom display case at our station for all to cherish and honor. Thank you Heather for your service, unwavering dedication and commitment to protect our freedom and our country.
