Dibrell Elementary School and the Warren County Sheriff’s Department were recently gifted with American flags by Cpl. Jonathan Maxwell Roberts.A McMinnville resident and graduate of Warren County High School in 2007, Roberts is a U.S. Marine currently assigned to a Prowler Jet Squadron stationed at Cherry Point, N.C. One of the squadron missions is to fly ahead of moving ground troops to detect and destroy electronic devices used to detonate IEDs. Occasionally, the pilots carry American flags on missions to be presented to people or organizations back home. Roberts says support from home means a lot to the troops.“We really appreciate the emails, cards, letters and care packages sent from home,” said Roberts.
