WILMINGTON -- A special visitor went to Coastal Christian High School Wednesday morning.

Camp Lejeune Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Hutcherson recently returned from Iraq, and presented the high school with the American flag that flew over his barracks on Christmas Day.

During the holiday season in 2007, the high school held a campaign to collect anything from shaving cream to phone cards for Marines in Iraq.

Overall, the students collected half a ton of supplies and treats. Hutcherson told the students the gifts meant a lot.

The high school students also wrote letters to the Marines.
