Flag flown in Afghanistan gifted to Sunnyside

A Sunnyside native, Army First Sgt. Francisco J. Gomez Jr., gifted to the city of Sunnyside a flag that was flown in Afghanistan.

The flag was sent to the city by Gomez, as were several photographs of Delta Company with which he is serving in the fight against the Taliban.

The Sunnyside City Council Monday decided the flag should be prominently displayed in the council chambers inside a display case.
