students recently received a special gift from a special alumnus that is part of an elite team defending our freedom overseas.
United States Air Force Capt. John Paul Andree III, class of 2003, last week presented an American flag flown during a mission he piloted on Thanksgiving Day 2011 over Afghanistan, according to a school news release. Andree is a member of the USAF's Special Forces and flies a M28 Skytruck that drops supplies after dark with nearly zero visibility at low altitudes in the mountainous country.
