A U.S. Flag unveiling was held at the Family Support Services Veteran Resource Center on March 24th, 2015.
The flag had been signed by Amarillo native and Tascosa High School graduate Lance Corporal Jody Baca, along with other U.S. Marines from Scout Platoon- Amarillo, TX in 2005 while they were serving in Iraq. Jody passed away in January after years of battling the physical and psychological wounds related to his service.
The flag was originally presented to our partner agency Amarillo Socks for Soldiers by these Marines due to their support, and will now have a permanent home in the VRC. The Veteran Resource Center, funded through a Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans Assistance grant, is dedicated to helping Veterans and their family members overcome the issues that LCpl Baca faced.
