Garrison Flag to Fly on Independence Day 2018
The City’s garrison flag will fly from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 4 at Veterans Memorial Park, 2651 Roadrunner Parkway, in observance of Independence Day.
After the flag has been raised, Las Cruces resident Naomi Vega will sing the National Anthem.
The garrison flag is flown on traditional and patriotic holidays, and the public is invited to help veterans raise and lower the flag. Volunteers should show up at the park about 15 minutes before the large flag is to be raised or lowered. Veterans will advise volunteers how they can help.
For information on dates when the garrison flag is flown, call James Turner at the New Mexico Department of Veteran Services, at 575/524-6220.
