The post presented Penphan with a U.S. flag and a certificate of congratulations for her becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States. Her husband became a citizen after serving with Army Special Forces in Vietnam and was held as a prisoner of war. Once released, he remained in the Army and achieved the rank of colonel before retiring and being a very active member of Post 655.
