Delaware County Vice Chair Dr. Monica Taylor, Councilman Kevin Madden, Councilwoman Elaine Schaefer, Executive Director Howard Lazarus, and Delaware County Park Police raised the U.S. Navy flag in honor of the founding of the United States Navy, which was established on October 13, 1775. It will fly from the flagpole in the courtyard of the Government Center and Courthouse complex for a week.
Throughout the year, the County raises flags in honor of all branches of the military and invites veterans to join in the flag raising. The County will raise the United States Marine Corps flag on Monday, November 1 at 8:45 a.m. in the Courtyard of the Government Center. Residents can enter from the Orange Street walkway.
The Army flag was raised in June, the Coast Guard flag was raised in August, and the Air Force flag was raised in September to commemorate the anniversaries.
The raising of each flag is a tribute to those serving, those who have served, and those who lost their lives defending our country and our freedom. Council extends their deepest gratitude to those serving or who have served in the military.
