Patty Lanni, Lincoln

(Nominated by Denny Deters)
State Capitol Rotunda
June 2, 2011

Patti is the mother of a West Point Graduate currently serving as a captain in the Army who has served in Afghanistan.  Her daughter-in-law is also an Army captain and a graduate of West Point. Patti’s second son is an Apache helicopter mechanic in the Missouri National Guard; he has also served in Iraq. Patti has her own sewing business in Omaha but she volunteers her time to make the flag patches that are sewn on to the National 9/11 Flag. She has also travelled to assist with the Flag restoration at several venues. With her family closely connected to the military, she feels it’s a great honor and privilege to be a part of this historical tour.
