Honoring flood heroes with flags


Iowa City (KWWL) Congressman Dave Loebsack is delivering US flags to those who put their lives on the line during this summer's flood.

The Ccongressman is giving flags to the Police and Fire Departments of Iowa City and Coralville, as well as safety officials with Johnson County and the University of Iowa.

Loebsack says it's a high honor.

"They have done exceptional service. They've done a lot on top of what they normally do, which is a heck of a lot, with regard to public service and public safety," says Congressman Loebsack.

Loebsack plans to visit several other flood-affected communities this week, and has plenty of flags left to give out.
