NEW YORK – An American flag that flew from an Army fighter jet during a combat mission in Afghanistan has been donated to Fordham Law School by Captain Kevin Carroll, a 2001 graduate. The flag will be displayed in the law school’s atrium.
Capt. Carroll donated the flag in honor of the members of the Fordham community who died in the Sept.11 terrorist attacks. The flag was flown in an A/OA-10A Thunderbolt II “Warthog” on June 27, 2003, during Operation Enduring Freedom.
“We’re honored that Captain Carroll chose to donate this flag to Fordham Law School,” said Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham University. “His efforts to protect our country are a perfect example of the value of service to others that is a key part of a Fordham education in the Jesuit tradition.”
Founded in 1841, Fordham is New York City’s Jesuit University. It has residential campuses in the north Bronx, Manhattan and Tarrytown, and the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y.
