The Arkansas flag hangs brightly in what was one of Saddam Husseins former palaces in Baghdads International Zone. The flag, made by girls from a local Iraqi school for the deaf, spans three stories in length and was hung by Arkansas 1st Battalion, 153rd Infantry, which is attached to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Cavalry Division.
The flag will return to the States with the Soldiers and find its new home in the Arkansas State Museum upon their return, currently scheduled for mid-March. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Rebekah-mae Bruns, 39th Brigade Combat Team Public Affairs)
