Honorary Flag at Retirement

My family has been very military influenced and affiliated for generations. My mother’s father John Carpenter as I call him Grandad, served 20 years as an Officer for the Army and 20 years as an officer and teacher for the Central Intelligence Agency. My grandfather has been honored for his 40 years of service by the Director of the C.I.A. He was presented a flag and a letter signed by the director. His flag was flown over the C. I.A. headquarters. He was presented this because of his hard work and integrity for his service to the United States. My grandfather has tried to instill these traits in me from a young age teaching me his lessons he would use on navy seals! He is a very honorable man and I'm am very proud of what he has accomplished. He is also being rewarded because when he passes away he will be buried in the National Cemetery in Arlington VA. His work as an intelligence officer is very important to me and my family and we are forever grateful for his service to the United States of America!
