SHERMAN, Tex. -- The family of a fallen soldier is honored by a member of their law enforcement family.
Harvey Smitherman, an investigator with the Grayson County Sheriff's Office, received a flag from reserve officer Stacy Lindley, who just returned from his fourth tour of duty in Iraq.
The flag flew in Basra, and Lindley says was the least he could do for Smitherman. His son, Brandon, died last fall serving in Iraq.
"It's an honor for the support and to know that a flag like this is being flown over in Iraq where so many other soldiers over there facing the same fate as my son, and with God's help, everyone can be home safe real soon," Harvey Smitherman says.
Smitherman says he plans to fly the flag at his home.
