PHOTO: Returning Soldier Presents Cross with Flag

The flag flew above a U.S. camp in Afghanistan.

US Army Captain Court Harris, son of state Rep. David Harris, presents a US flag to House Republican Leader Tom Cross, R-Oswego.  The flag flew above Camp Arena in Herat Afghanistan on May 20, 2012. CPT Harris, who just returned from a year-long deployment to Afghanistan, presented the flag to Cross for his service to the people of Illinois this week.

Thank you to Captain Harris for his service. Outside of that, not sure why Cross needs this PR piece.

How about if we just stop the damn wars. Get out of Afghanistan, and stop spending my tax dollars on a endless pit. 40,000 dead & injured vets, NOT WORTH IT. Spend the money fixing bridges at home.Put the guys to work.
