Retired Navy Cmdr. Joseph Agra III (left), Afghan national army air corps logistics mentor, reads a citation regarding an American flag with 48 stars that was raised during a ceremony July 4 at Camp Eggers in Kabul, Afghanistan. Agra 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.
