Morgans give flag to Sharpsburg Elementary

The Morgan family of Sharpsburg presented Sharpsburg Elementary School with a special flag and photograph.

Travis Morgan recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq and was able to get a flag that flew on a military helicopter. He and his family gave the flag to the school as a thank you for a successful year and as a remembrance of their family and the troops still deployed. The Morgans will be returning to South Carolina this summer. The Sharpsburg community will miss them.
