Lilly Nutter (right) presents Dennis Stroud, one of the founders of the U.S.S. Salamonie Museum at the Knight Bergman Center, in Warren, with a plaque and American flag she had received for her efforts sending bags of conveniences and food to American troops in war zones. The veterans of the U.S.S. Salamonie continually support her efforts with donations for the mailing of more than 1,200 bags, she noted. The flag she presented to Stroud at the U.S.S. Salamonie reunion on Saturday evening, July 6, flew over an American base in Iraq for several hours.
