Flag Comes from Afghanistan

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The students at Alkali Creek got a hands-on education about patriotism Monday.

The school's flag was worn. So, Girl Scout Troop 2228 and teacher, Vonnie Casey, brought in the new pennants that came all the way from Afghanistan. Vonnie Casey's son, Captain Bryan Casey, served overseas. He offered the flag he carried with him during his deployment to Alkali Creek Elementary. School Principal, Greg Senitte, said it's a great honor. "It's just a great thing for kids to get knowledgeable about how to respect the flag and what that stands for in our country," Senitte said.

Captain Casey was also able to retrieve a flag that flew over a base in Afghanistan. That flag was hung up inside the Alkali Creek School Monday afternoon.
