(From left to right) Staff Sgt. Jason Williams, a resident of Rochester, Ill., and Spc. Christopher Turner, a resident of Petersburg, Ill., fold up the American flag during the flag-raising ceremony held at Camp Lincoln, Springfield, Ill., May 6.  Williams and Turner are both members of the Illinois Army National Guard Military Funeral Honors Program stationed at Camp Butler National Cemetery.  The American flag along with the Illinois State flag was presented to Mark Greenleaf, a citizen of Woodstock, Ill., who is sending the flags to the Illinois Army National Guard Company D, 1st Battalion, 178th Infantry currently deployed to Afghanistan.  Greenleaf hopes the unit will be able to fly the flags while it is in Afghanistan. The flag had previously flown over the U.S. Capitol, Woodstock City Hall and Woodstock Armory.
