Flag Returned From Iraq

An American flag flown in Vietnam and Iraq is now back in East Texas.

 Harold Warrick a former Marine carried the flag with him during the Vietnam War in 1968 and 1969.

When Harold's friend's son Corporal Joshua Forrester went to Iraq last year, Harold decided to send the flag to him as a show up support.

Last night Corporal Forrester came home from Iraq and returned the flag to Warrick.

"I thought why not give it to someone who can use it," says Warrick.

Corporal Forrester will be in Texas unitl May 27. Then he head to Camp Pendleton and then back to Iraq.
