A group of sailors from the Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan hold an American flag with 48 stars July 4 after it was flown over Camp Eggers in Kabul, Afghanistan. Retired Navy Cmdr. Joseph Agra III acquired the flag in 2000 after a fisherman retrieved it from the water off the coast of the Bataan penninsula in the Philippines. Agra has carried the flag to several locations and has flown it over camps in Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.
