CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Stitched into the American flag flown over the Franklin County Jail on Wednesday was a story.
A plaque for the case that will later display it will tell the story of how it flew over Taji, Iraq, on May 22, 2009.
Staff Sgt. Jeffrey Ott of the Pennsylvania National Guard's Stryker Brigade flew the flag in tribute to his colleagues from Franklin County Jail, where he works as a correctional officer.
Warden John Wetzel said he was touched to learn Ott thought of his co-workers while serving in a war zone.
"It's a proud moment for us," Wetzel said as the flag snapped in the breeze, framed by white clouds and a blue sky.
