Lawrence grocer Jim Lewis, owner of Checkers, 2300 La., has received a citation of appreciation from a local veteran's auxiliary for flying the flag at his store.
He was presented the award earlier this year by the American Legion Auxiliary.
Lewis flies both the American and Missing in Action flags outside his store.
The certificate was part of the "Show Your Colors, America!" campaign by the Citizens Flag Alliance, Inc., which is seeking to make flag desecration illegal.
