Photo: A flag comes home to Warwick

A year ago today, the city of Warwick unveiled its memorial to the Sept. 11 terror attacks by raising an American flag. They then took it down and shipped it to Iraq with a Warwick helicopter pilot, who raised the flag at his base and then took it with him on several missions. Then, it came back home, was flown over the State House, and used at St. Patrick's and St. Joseph's Day festivities. Today, it returned for permanent display at Warwick City Hall, where children from St. Rose Elementary School sang patriotic songs during the ceremony, which coincides with Flag Day.
