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.
