NJROTC raises flag at Turtle Skin Cemetery

Submitted by Chief Mark Thorman

The Picayune NJROTC cadets along with the American Legion and VFW sponsored a flag pole and flag to honor

the veterans that were buried at Turtle Skin Cemetery. On August 19, 2007 Picayune NJRTOC cadets gathered

at the Turtle Skin Cemetery right outside the north gate of Stennis Space Center.

The cadets started early in the morning by digging the hole where the flag pole would be placed. Then they poured

the concrete that they had mixed themselves, and set the pole. After the pole was set and ready the cadets proudly

rose the American flag over the graves of the veterans buried at Turtle Skin cemetery.
