FLAG DAY 2015
Rear Admiral J. Stanton Thompson
Join us Sunday, June 14 at 1:30 p.m. at the Missouri Korean War Memorial in Washington Square Park as we respectfully retire a flag in observance of Flag Day. Rear Admiral J. Stanton Thompson, USN (Ret.) will deliver a keynote address, and American Legion Post 182 will play “Taps.”
The purpose is to respect the memory and sacrifices of veterans, to educate people on the proper way to retire a flag, and to show that flags need to be treated with respect.
