Active members of the U.S. Navy and Navy Veterans are invited to join County officials in the raising of the U.S. Navy flag on Thursday, October 13 at 1:00 p.m. in front of the Courthouse located at 201 W. Front Street in Media.
The flag will be raised to commemorate the anniversary of the U.S. 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 active members of the military and Veterans to join in the flag raisings. 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 U.S. Marine Corps flag will be raised in November.
Council expresses deep gratitude to those who have served or are serving in the military protecting and defending our country.
