More School Flags to Fly in Antarctica

Townline Elementary and the School of Dual Language are the latest schools to provide flags to be flown in Antarctica. Aspen Elementary, Middle School North and several other local schools also provided flags to Air National Guard Chaplain (Lt. Col.) James Buckman, pastor at Faith Lutheran Church in Lake Forest. He and other Air Guard personnel will travel to Antarctica next week to support a group of scientists who will be working at the South Pole for 40 days. He will fly the flags while he is stationed there.
