Early Friday evening the U.S. Honor Flag arrived in the state of Montana to honor Deputy Sheriff Mason Moore.
It will remain with the deputy until his internment.
The U.S. Honor Flag had recently been in Washington, D.C. for national law enforcement events and tributes.
The U.S. Honor Flag was escorted by various law enforcement along the route from Washington, D.C. to get to Montana as quickly as possible.
“Even after over seven million miles, my team hasn’t become desensitized on the importance on getting this treasure to a fallen Hero,” said Chris Heisler, Founder of the U.S. Honor Flag.
“We drove through record high temperatures, massive thunderstorms, numerous tornado warnings, and a late winter snow storm. We made sure that Mason would be honored,” he said.
Heisler will be speaking at the memorial services for Deputy Sheriff Mason Moore next week.

Since 2007 the flag has been secured inside a custom ballistic case that can be tracked around the planet and is known as HarwoodONE.
