Veterans look over a flag flown over Camp Liberty in Baghdad, noting that it still has some desert sand ground in it. Vietnam Veteran Harvey M. Welsh (right), Sp. 5th Class, became the owner of a treasured American Flag received recently from nephew SFC David Shumacher of the 10th Mountain Division. Schumacher was home on a two-week leave this past winter and took a new U. S. flag back to Iraq with him, for his second tour of duty in that country. He had all 42 members of the 2nd B214 Infantry group sign the flag, flew it for three weeks over their camp in Iraq and then sent it to Welsh as a gift. Welsh is a 10-year Army vet, having served in Vietnam in 1965-67, and is a native of Watertown. Veteran Clifford L. White (left), Sgt. E5 1, 1st Cavalry Division, from Middletown, NY, is sharing Welsh's interest in the flag. White is a disabled Vet having served in Vietnam in 1969-70. Also examining the flag is WW II Veteran MSgt. Harold Haig (center) originally from Philadelphia, PA, who served in the China-Burma-India Theater and is an Air Force retiree with 32 years service. All three are now friends and are residents of Constableville. (Photo by Betty Haig)
