Active members of the U.S. Air Force and Air Force Veterans are invited to join County officials in the raising of the U.S. Air Force flag on Monday, September 18, at 12:30 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. Air Force which was established on September 18, 1947. It will fly from the flagpole in the courtyard of the Government Center and Courthouse complex throughout the 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.
Military flags will be raised at appropriate times later this year in observance of the Navy, on Oct. 13, 1775; and the Marine Corps, on Nov. 10, 1775. The Army flag was raised in June, and the Coast Guard flag was raised in August to commemorate the anniversaries.
Council expresses a deep gratitude to those who have served or are serving in the military protecting and defending our country.
