A Snellville woman was recently presented with the US flag that was flown over the nation's capital for her time working for the United States Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service. 

Having spent 39 years with the USDA, Joyce Reiling was the senior program specialist with the child nutrition programs. Regional Administrator Don Arnette with the department presented Reiling with the flag, which was flown over Washington on Sept. 1.

"When presented with the flag by my office, I told them it was the highest honor they could have given me," said Reiling. "Although they had held a wonderful retirement party with gifts, the flag meant more to me because it was truly a symbol of our country and the sacrifices of many to ensure the freedom for us all. Currently the flag is on display at our shop, but it will soon be prominently displayed in our home." 

She and her husband, Tim, have been living in Snellville for 12 years and own Print Magic Specialty Printing.
