Yesterday, University of Kansas Chancellor Robert Hemenway presented a KU flag to soldiers of the Kansas Army National Guard?s Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 1st Battalion, 127th Field Artillery. The unit is being deployed to Iraq. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, the commander in chief of the Kansas National Guard, and Maj. Gen. (KS) Tod Bunting, the adjutant general, participated in the ceremony.

    "It is a privilege to present the KU flag to these courageous soldiers as they depart to serve their country," said Hemenway. "I hope the flag will serve as a daily reminder of the support and pride that this university has for their immense personal sacrifice. We look forward to welcoming them back from Iraq, so we fly the flag over campus in their honor."
