Flag flown in Afghanistan to be presented on Veterans Day
29 October 2010

SPECIAL HONOR: An American Flag that was flown September 11, 2010 at the U. S. Air Force base in Kandahar, Afghanistan will be presented to United Tribes Technical College during the college’s observance of Veteran’s Day. The flag was flown at the base on 9-11 specifically to thank United Tribes and its many Veterans for their patriotic support. Evelyn Orth, the college’s Practical Nursing program director, made the arrangements with her son-in-law Major Christopher Sandison, who is part of the headquarters detachment of the 158th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion. Sandison grew up in Cavalier, ND and lives in Tucson, AZ, where he is in the Army National Guard. The flag has since been returned to the United States and will be presented on Veterans Day along with a certificate. The UTTC program is sponsored by the college’s culture committee and begins at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 11 in the lower level of the Jack Barden Center. The public is invited to attend.
