For a handful of years, French Funeral Home had been in discussion with members of the Brazil City Fire Department (BCFD) in reference to the possibility of purchasing an American Garrison Flag.
On Tuesday, officials with the local funeral home made the discussions reality, as Nick French presented the city with a Garrison Flag.
French said he had discussed the idea with BCFD Chief Jim Smith and City of Brazil Mayoral Secretary Mary Staub since the death of Marine Cpl. Gregory Stultz.
French added the discussions continued just a few months ago.
"That's when we said, 'Let's get rolling on this,'" French said.
French presented the department with the 38-by-20 flag Tuesday.
According to Mayor Ann Bradshaw, the city has never owned a Garrison Flag.
"I am really happy about this," Bradshaw said. "When (Cpl. Stultz) was killed, we borrowed one from Vigo County."
Bradshaw added the City of Greencastle also assisted with a Garrison Flag during proceedings for Cpl. Stultz.
Bradshaw said the plan is to hang the flag during the Heroes Breakfast Saturday at Pappy's Bar-B-Que.
"We can display it with one ladder truck," she said.
