Inside the probate courtroom, centered between the Stars and Stripes and Alabama’s state flag, hangs an American Flag not made with a typical needle or thread, but with cuts of wood stained with by the hands of a combat veteran.

Normally the state’s or county’s seal is mounted just above the judge’s chair; however, when her colleagues presented her with the Flag of Valor after being sworn in as Marshall County’s first female judge of probate, Andrea LeCroy was nearly moved to tears. From that moment she knew where her new flag would be flying.
