Former POW receives special US flag

A World War II veteran received a special gift from his grandson, all the way from Afghanistan.

George Walden is a former POW and now his grandson is serving in the war on terrorism. So after a flag that flew over the US headquarters in Afghanistan was retired, the grandson packed it up with a plaque and sent it to his grandfather and his ex-American Prisoner of War Association in Tulsa.

Walden's grandson is a paratrooper with Task Force 33.

George Walden: "It flew over one of the capitols over there and he got it and the general signed it and everything."

The flag and the plaque will be on display at the Veterans Administration building in Tulsa.
