GI sends flag, writes to pen pal pupils

Mansfield- A soldier serving in Kuwait mailed a surprise to about 40 fifth-graders – a U.S. flag that had flown over his base and a personalized letter written to each of his young pen pals.

On Friday, the students at St. Peter’s read their letters in class and displayed the flag that had come from Camp Buehring, where Army Lt. Scott Baldy, 41, is base commander.

The students began writing to Baldy at Christmas.
