CHAMPAIGN -- A local soldier is home and giving back to the community. Lieutenant Colonel Yvette Rose just finished her third deployment. She recently returned home from Afghanistan.

She brought back an American flag which had flown there on 9/11 this year. She gave it to American Legion Post 559 as a way of saying thanks for all its support.

When Lt. Colonel Rose isn't serving our country, she serves as an assistant principal at Centennial High School.
