Students at a central Iowa school can now touch history. A United States flag which was flown over enemy territory in Iraq recently is now encased in a display at Interstate 35 Community Schools in Truro. Marie Glass’ sons Rob and Mark are both Air Force Staff Sergeants serving in the war. They sent the flag to their alma mater.Her youngest son has been overseas for a couple of months, and she says the flag was flown in a jet over southern Iraq. Mrs. Glass says most children are impressed by the display, although she says not everyone at the school supports the war. She says she hasn’t spoken with either of her sons in quite some time, but does communicate with them frequently by email. Glass says children at the school understand the importance of the flag. She says there may be some mixed emotions, as there are probably some that don’t belive in the war, but she says they’re pretty awed when they see the flag. Glass says while she supports the war, she hates the war. She says she hates what the war does to families, tearing fathers away from their children. Rob Glass, a Munitions Specialist on an F-15 fighter jet dedicated the flag to his school district and its townspeople. Rob’s brother Mark is a Radar Specialist flying on the AWAC jet, a surveillance plane.
