Marine Jacob Falk graduated from Adams Central High School in 2008. He has since gone on to serve two terms in Afghanistan during some of the most heated parts of the war.
Falk's job during his term of service was to transport supplies; a task that couldn't be taken lightly.
While in Afghanistan, Falk asked that a flag be raised on his base in honor of Adams Central Community Schools. Last Friday, Falk brought that flag and a certificate of authenticity to present to the school.
