It's not unusual for people to have an American flag on display in their house, but not many are as extraordinary as the one in Kathie Gasior's kitchen: the flag flew over the 28th Combat Support Hospital, Medical Task Force's facility in Mosul, Iraq.
Gasior is chair of the annual jewelry sale fundraiser to benefit Operation Troop Appreciation, and she received the flag in 2007 for her tireless work for the organization. From the time Gasior became involved, she raised considerable donations for OTA by talking with various schools and groups, and now the jewelry sale.
