There will soon be a Symbol of Patriotism welcoming our troops home at the Airport.

The group called Permian Basin Supports Our Troops, a welcome home committee, donated a big American Flag to the airport on Tuesday.

All thanks to the help of Fred and Connie Phillips.

The fifteen by twenty five foot flag will be hanging proudly when the men and women who serve our country put their feet back on West Texas soil.

"What we have missing is a big blank wall, and we wanted to fill it with a United States Flag in honor of all of the soldiers given their lives, and our out there serving our country, keeping us free," Fred Phillips, Director of Operations for Taco Villa said.

The large Flag will hang on the wall beside the escalator.
