Afghanistan vet to present flag at Jordan College assembly

Fresno State ag operations mechanic Danny Sexton will mark his return from an eight-month U.S. Navy deployment in Afghanistan by presenting an American flag to the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12 in the Ag Sciences building (Room 109). Sexton, a 10-year employee at Fresno State, will present the 3-foot by 5-foot flag to his coworkers as a thank you for their support while he was on duty. Sexton returned to Fresno in late November. “Fresno State was very supportive and held my job while I was gone,” Sexton said. “I wanted to give one of the flags we flew back to the Jordan College to show how much I appreciated their support.”
