Meet the Team :: Wayne DePew

Wayne started with Custom Flag after his retirement from Federal Law Enforcement spanning over 30 years (USAF and DOJ). Wayne hails from Georgia and moved here in 1991. He is a competitive Ultra Marathoner and has run races from 5K to 100 miles. He is also half way in completing his goal of running a marathon in all 50 states.  What this job means to me: “The flag will always hold a place of respect in my heart. It is truly a special honor to go to the sites where we maintain the US, Colorado, POW-MIA and all Military Service Flags.
