Delaware County Council Chairman Brian Zidek, Councilwoman Christine Reuther, Delaware County Sherriff Jerry Sanders, and Executive Director Howard Lazarus were honored to raise the U.S. Air Force flag in honor of the founding of the Air Force on September 18, 1947.
The U.S. Air Force flag will fly from the flagpole in the courtyard of the Government Center and Courthouse complex for a week.
Military flags will be raised at appropriate times later this year in observance of the Navy, on Oct. 13, 1775; and the Marine Corps, on Nov. 10, 1775. The Army flag was raised in June and the Coast Guard flag was raised in August to commemorate the anniversaries.
Council expresses a deep gratitude to those who have served or are serving in the military protecting and defending our country.
