U.S. Army/Staff Sgt. Mike Pryor - Pfc. Alexander Cesario, a forward observer with Alpha Company, Special Troops Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, displays his father’s American flag on a rooftop in Baghdad’s Suleikh neighborhood on Thursday. As a soldier in Vietnam, the elder Cesario flew the flag every day — including a three-day period that he was missing in action — and his son now carries it with him on patrols in Iraq.
