The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3137 Auxiliary presented its Americanism award to Windy Plank State Farm in West Ashley Thursday. The award is given to a business that displays “undivided allegiance to the American flag and a desire to secure the blessings of liberty and prosperity.”

Agency owner Windy Plank says patriotism is a centerpiece of her business. She said, “We always take the flag down at night and when it is raining. We also prominently display the flag inside our office at all times. We really appreciate what our veterans have done for our great country.”

VFW Post 3137 is located on the beach at Isle of Palms. It has 1400 veteran and auxiliary members and is listed as one of about 200 All-American Posts. In addition to recognizing patriotic businesses, the post supports the Fisher House, Toys for Tots, and the Veterans Administration hospital.
