American Flag - Cemetery

The photos that follow were taken on May 29, 2014 in the Union and West End Cemetery. Unfortunately the winter of 2013--2014 was not kind to this flag that flew over the United States Capitol approximately 14 months ago.

A new flag has been acquired and will be run up the flag pole tomorrow during a Memorial Day Ceremony in the cemetery. Memorial Day is being celebrated by Chapter 190, the Military Order of the Purple Heart on the traditional date for Memorial Day celebrations.

Come out to the Union and West End Cemetery tomorrow May 30, 2014, and enjoy the Memorial Day Ceremony.








And so it goes...
