Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio Students at a Farmington school learn about a war half a world away as a symbol comes home to stay.
Old Glory is back home, resting permanently at Knowlton Elementary School in Farmington, after flying atop Camp Buka in southern Iraq.
"The flag, itself, I actually took over there with me. It's been in there for six months, but it only flew for one evening," explained Sgt. Michael Aubrey.
Aubrey is on his second tour of duty and is about to return to Iraq. "When I get back it should be halfway over with. We don't know exactly how much time, though," he said.
The 700 students at the school are learning about Iraq by watching videos on Delta Company. They just sent more than 300 pounds of candy and games to those on the front lines.
