Zoey Pol is only nine years old, but she's making headlines for catching a serious error that a lot of adults missed.
And this mistake had to do with our great country's flag.
Zoey and her brother were on their way back home from visiting their grandparents when they spotted a problem the National Guard Armory in Lorain, Ohio. The light that was supposed to illuminate the American flag was totally burnt out.
Zoey's dad Brad said the problem bothered her so much, she went to go talk to him about it soon after.
Brad said, "She was taught proper flag etiquette at McKinley Elementary School last year and when she told me about it, I suggested she write a letter."
And so she did.
On top of that, the little girl even read it aloud for local newspapers.
"They do not have the flag with a light shining on it," she sad. "It is not lowered or taken off of the flag pole, and that is very wrong. I think that your city should do something about it. I will be very happy if you do that."
Sure enough, the letter made a huge difference.
Lt. Col. Bob Vagnier said, "We’ve been trying to get that light fixed for a while, but one letter from Zoey and it was done in 24 hours."
Even better? The Armory was so grateful for Zoey's message that they even invited her in for an award for her "bravery and knowledge of her civic duties."
