The John Sevier Chapter of the Tennessee Society Sons of the American Revolution recognized William L. Cohen and his business Storage King on Thursday for their exemplary patriotism in the display of the flag of the United States of America.
John Sevier Chapter President Bryan Beck accompanied by 2nd Vice President Joel Davenport made the official presentation of the SAR’s Flag Certificate to members of Mr. Cohen’s office staff at the 5027 Hixson Pike location.
Mr. Cohen noted in a letter to the members of the John Sevier Chapter that, “My father and all my uncles served in either the Pacific or European theaters (World War Two). What I recall is that wherever I went, there were American flags in each home that I visited. That became indelible in my memory and as the war ended, patriotism and love of country abounded throughout my childhood.
"I think it’s important that private enterprise shows our love of country by displaying our flag as a symbol to those we come in contact with. I thank you for this honor of recognizing us and say God Bless America. Thank you.”
The SAR seeks to honor businesses and individuals who demonstrate their patriotism by the display of the nation’s flag. Please contact the John Sevier Chapter at https://johnsevierchapter.org/home for more information.
