9.11 Memorial, Flag Themes

For the members of Boy Scout Troop 1, 9/11 is a particularly complicated holiday; the troop, which is the oldest in Virginia, was chartered on September 11, 1911, and held a flag-raising ceremony commemorated the troop's 100th Anniversary while paying respect to those who died on 9/11. It was so hard to avoid the constant American flags everywhere. . . and for us in Norfolk, we remembered the bombing of the USS COle, which was anchored in the Elizabeth river behind the downtown ceremony.
