COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- One Nettleton farmer is showing his patriotism in a creative way..on his combine.
Darel Nicholson says he was on a trip last winter and he noticed a combine carrying the stars and strips of the American Flag. He told himself he had to get his own and called his friends at Black Prarie Tractor in Columbus.
“I’m a veteran anyway, from desert storm. I just thought it looked nice and decided i’ll try to get it if he offered it,” said Nicholson.
“We haven’t had anyone ask for it before and it’s rather unique. I think there’s only about 1/2 a dozen or so combines in the U.S. like this, so, it’s nearly one of a kind,” said Rodney Mast, General Manager of Black Prarie Tractor.
Owners tell us it took more than a day to place the flag on the combine.
Nicolson says he’s excited to drive it home and show it to his family.
