Delaware County Councilman Kevin Madden, the County’s Interim Director of Military and Veterans Affairs Sandra Garrison, Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon, State Representative Leanne Kreuger, and Veterans Chaplain Justin Cohen were honored to join U.S. Navy Veterans Bill Murray and Rob Yannuzzi in raising the U.S. Navy flag on October 13 outside of the Delaware County Courthouse in Media.
The flag raising was held in honor of the founding of the Navy on October 13, 1775. The U.S. Navy flag 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 active military and Veterans to join in the flag raisings. The last military flag will be raised later this year in observance of the Marine Corps, on Nov. 10, 1775. 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.
Council expresses deep gratitude to those who have served or are serving in the military protecting and defending our country.
