3rd Grader Notices This About A Flagpole, Demands It Gets Fixed

All little children are taught to respect the flag of the United States of America in grade school. But how often do you see children act on what they have learned? Little Zoey Pol made her parents proud when she showed them how much she respects and cares for the flag.

While driving past the National Guard Armory in Lorain, Ohio, Zoey saw a broken light bulb that was supposed to shine light on the American Flag. Seeing this as unacceptable, Zoey complained to her father who told her to write a letter. He told The Chronicle, " She was taught proper flag etiquette at McKinley Elementary School last year and when she told me about it, I suggested she write a letter.”

Zoey did just that and wrote the Morning Journal a letter to address city officials. It read, “They do not have the flag with a light shining on it. It is not lowered or taken off of the flagpole, and that is very wrong. I think that your city should do something about it. I will be very happy if you do that.”

City officials took it upon themselves to send Zoey's letter directly to the armory. The man to get it fixed was Lieutenant Colonal Bob Vagnier who told The Chronicle, “We’ve been trying to get that light fixed for a while, but one letter from Zoey and it was done in 24 hours.” Lt. Col. also said, “It’s amazing to see someone so young caring about the flag and our military.” He was so impressed by the initiative Zoey took that he presented her with an award in a very special ceremony. He also gave her a coin “bravery and knowledge of her civic duties.”

When asked by the Chronicle what she thought she said in all humility she was glad that he brother showed her the light and all she did was write a letter to point it out to the city.
