Members of the late Col. Jeff DeBlanc's family and others gather around a specially cased American flag flown above public buildings throughout the parish in tribute to the World War II flying ace and longtime educator.

The flag, cased with a photo of DeBlanc accepting the Medal of Honor from President Harry Truman, will be on display in the Parish Government Building.
