The Seacoast Detachment #394 of the Marine Corps League will be recognizing Rhodes “Rhodie” Haskell with the Loyalty and Patriotism Award this Monday, Presidents Day, at 1200 @ his State Line Garage on Rt 153.
In addition to the award, we will present him with a new United States Marine Corps Flag to replace his tattered Marine Corps Flag.
Our recognition is the least we could do for Wakefield’s outstanding citizen and a patriot who has consistently flown our United States Flag properly for many, many years. Our Marine Corps core values of Honor – Courage – Commitment are the same core values that Rhodes emulates in his daily life; Honor our flag and those who serve; his support of service members, his family’s service; to include his Marine son, the Courage to serve his community as an active first-responder with the Fire and Rescue Service, and the Commitment to the Wakefield Community as a respected business owner and active in civic endeavors.
