SgtQualls.pngSgt. Greg Qualls of the Arkansas Air National Guard came to Fayetteville High School on December 1 to thank former Ramay Jr. High GT students for the 30 care packages they sent to him last year while he was deployed to Afghanistan. The students are now sophomores at FHS.

He told the students he distributed the packages to soldiers who were deployed at forward base camps, and he added that receiving the packages from home made many of the soldiers cry.

He presented photos and videos of his time in Afghanistan, explained the gear that soldiers must wear in a combat area, and brought the students a U.S. Flag that few in Afghanistan, as well as patches and certificates from the Air Force.

Here are photos taken during the presentation:
