OLD BRIDGE – St. Ambrose School has received a flag that was flown in its honor in Afghanistan.

The classmates of Patrick Grospin, a fifth grade student at the Old Bridge school, made cards and other items to send to his father, Lt. Col. Fred J. Grospin, while he was stationed in Afghanistan. Grospin was on a 10-month deployment, stationed on a NATO base in Kabul, as a member of the 645th Regional Support Group Detachment 1.

The flag had been flown over Camp Resolute Support in Kabul on Dec. 25, 2016, in honor of St. Ambrose. Grospin presented the flag to the school on June 7.
