Wednesday, December 01, 2010, Specialist Jeremy Hartman entered the doors of McKenzie Elementary School on a heartfelt mission for his younger sister, Kimberly Roberts. 

As departure time approaches for Spec Hartman to ‘board his ship', returning to Iraq, waves of emotions flourish through big brothers' heart.  Most of us have experienced the sadness of parting with a loved one as they embark to enemy territory.  Brotherly love is exhibited today by Hartman as he presents the United States flag to his sister, Kimberly, and Principal Richard Davy. This particular flag was flown over Iraq, giving more significance and worth to the presentation.

Specialist Jeremy Hartman was deployed to Iraq in March of this year.  At the present, he is on a 15 day leave and will return home again in March of 2011. He is with the 253th MP Company out of Lenior City, Tennessee.  Kim is a 3rd grade student at MES under the supervision of Mrs. Tenia King.
