Major Scott Siems, who was recently deployed in Afghanistan with the U.S. Air Force, donated a flag flown in his airplane during several missions to Trailridge Elementary School.
Major Siems’ son is Gavin, a student in Shauna Shipman’s first-grade class. During his visit to Trailridge, the major shared information with the first-graders about his plane, an A-10 Warthog fighter plane.
During Major Siems’ deployment, Mrs. Shipman’s class made him cards and sent them to Afghanistan. The donated flag was flown in his airplane.
