[ARCHIVED] Linn County flag flown in combat returns to Linn County

Linn County flag

On Jan. 6, Linn County Auditor Joel D. Miller presented a Linn County flag to the Linn County Board of Supervisors which had been flown on a combat sortie in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. The flag was carried aloft by an F-16 pilot in November of 2015 and it will be on display at the Linn County Veterans Affairs Office in the Community Services Building.

A member of Auditor Miller’s family, a current United States Air Force Reservist supporting Operation Inherent Resolve, coordinated the handoff of the flag to the pilot and its return to Linn County. Auditor Miller is an Army veteran and the Office of Linn County Auditor is a signatory to the Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve (ESGR®).
