    Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas waits to assist with the raising of the Vermont battle flag during a visit to Bagram Airfield Afghanistan July 24. “To the best of my knowledge, Gov. Douglas is the first sitting governor to raise the Vermont Battle Flag in an active war zone,” said U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Dwight D. Harrington, Barre, Vt., resident and brigade historian for the 86th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Mountain). “In a war zone, it is an honor for a Soldier to raise a flag. It was a double honor to have the governor assist us today.” Douglas visited Bagram as part of a multiple country tour, including Kuwait and Iraq.
