Cape May Flag Ceremony 2017
CAPE MAY, NJ, Sept. 18, 2017 — Thank you to everyone who came out for our annual flag ceremony as we remembered fourteen years without Brian. Cape May NJ was a favorite childhood vacation spot, and on this day Brian’s flag flew high above Sunset Beach in his honor.
This ceremony is repeated each day from May through October, honoring the casket flags of US veterans from sunrise to sunset. At sunset the flag is lowered by the family of the veteran while Taps plays. The flag is folded with honor, and the ceremony ends with the National Anthem. Each night, this brief Flag Ceremony is enjoyed by many vacationers on the beach and boaters in the bay.
