CUMBERLAND: Patriot Flag Display

CUMBERLAND: Patriot Flag Display

On Thursday, June 23rd, from 7 a.m. to noon, the Town of Cumberland will be displaying a 30 ft. by 60 ft. flag on our ladder truck at Moss Side Cemetary at the Veterans Monument.  This flag is part of a nationwide tour that will be displayed in all 50 states and will conclude in New York City at ground zero on September 11th.  The intent of this display in each state is to remind all of our citizens to "Never Forget" the tragic events that happened to our country ten years ago.
 

There will be public safety staff, veterans, and anyone else that had a part of the terrorist attacks (both directly or indirectly) present.  The Patriot Flag tour has been featured on the CBS evening news and has grown in public awareness since the tour initiated last September.
