Compatriots Jesse Andrews and Michael Gunn, representing CCSAR, participated in the first annual Flag Retirement & Pearl Harbor Ceremony along with others and members of the American Legion Post 534 on December 7th, 2014. President Don McGraw requested that we initiate such an opportunity for the proper disposal of American flags that had served out their usefulness.

More than sixty people were present at the two Ceremonies (Flag retirement at the River Road, Legion Hall & Pearl Harbor Memorial at the Anderson Ferry site on the Ohio River). Compatriot Andrews placed a wreath into the river to honor those who were sacrificed in the 1941 attack on the Naval Base in Oahu.
