POWIDZ, Poland - Staff Sgt. James Campbell, a unit supply noncommissioned officer from Great Falls, Montana, Sgt. Levi Proctor, an ammunitions specialist from Missoula, Montana, and Staff Sgt. Joel Brown a wheeled vehicle mechanic from Clancy, Montana, insert unit colors and the U.S. flag into a wooden base designed and built by Staff Sgt. Campbell. Each unit in the military has a unit flag that represents only that unit. The unit flag, or colors, represent the unit regardless of where they are in the world. Colors are posted in a central location for all to see. They are symbols of a Soldier’s identity and pride.
