Delaware County Council members Kevin Madden and Christine Reuther, Executive Director Howard Lazarus, and the County’s Interim Director of Military and Veterans Affairs Sandra Garrison were honored to join U.S. Marine Corps Veterans State Representative Dave Delloso, Park Police Officers Stephen Spadaro and Frank Casey, Thomas Sottile, Darwin Mushrush, Bill McMullen, Sgt. Patrick McKenna, Harry Eder, and Bill Murray in raising the U.S. Marine Corps flag on November 10 outside of the Delaware County Courthouse in Media.
The flag raising was held in honor of the founding of the Marines on November 10, 1775.
The U.S Marines Corps 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 Army flag was raised in June, the Coast Guard flag was raised in August, the Air Force Flag was raised in September, and the Navy flag was raised in October to commemorate the anniversaries.
Council expresses deep gratitude to those who have served or are serving in the military protecting and defending our country.
