GRAND FORKS – Veterans and nurses watched as airmen from the Grand Forks Air Force Base presented an Altru employee with a flag Thursday, May 23.

Air Force veteran and registered nurse Chad Gilberts received the flag during a ceremony beside a flagpole on Altru's property.

“Good to remember all the veterans that have lost their lives defending this country, giving us the rights that we have,” Gilberts said.

The flag will soon have a permanent location in the hospital for veterans and their families to visit. Altru is working on figuring out a location.
