B.J. Clement (top photo), a member of the API Producers Inc. elevator team in Durham, takes a break from affixing a U.S. flag decal near the top of one of the company’s newly painted fuel storage tanks along Kansas Highway 15. Clement said he and coworker Tim Svobda, shown in the left photo operating the hydraulic lift for Clement, came up with the idea to put a flag on the tank as way to thank U.S. troops serving in Iraq. They expect to add a decal under the flag saying “Support Our Troops.” Said Clement: “We’ve have a lot of young men from the surrounding area that went to Iraq. Thank God they’ve all come home. That’s when I thought, it’s good to remember them. It’s good that people don’t forget what happened on 9-11. I think that’s the biggest thing. And when you see that military person, say thanks.”
