Helke Elementary now has a new flag that has a very special story with it.
The American flag was flown over Afghanistan Sept. 11, 2015 by a MQ-1B Predator as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
Air Force Major Robert McGowan presented the flag today when he visited Helke to speak with a number of classes about the armed forces.
Major McGowan is an AF pilot who just returned home from a one-year deployment abroad.
The flag and a certificate will be placed on permanent display at Helke Elementary School.
