Flag goes to Afghanistan

One of the Operation Iraqi Freedom flags, which is on display in the front lobby of Saugus High School, will fly again in Afghanistan.

The American flag in the display case in the front lobby of Saugus High School once flew in the Apache helicopter of Saugus graduate Captain Aaron Schilleci.

It now is on its way to perform similar duty with American troops in Afghanistan.

Schilleci’s command, Charlie Company, engaged in more than 100 missions over Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. His unit (Task Force Wolf Pack) now is deployed in the mountains of Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan, where the environment is much more challenging than the flat, arid terrain of central Iraq.

Schilleci recently contacted Saugus High Principal Bill Bolde, requesting to keep tradition alive and fly the same flag that had flown in Iraq in the Afghani Theater of Operations.
