STATEMENT FROM MAYOR LENNY CURRY, CITY OF JACKSONVILLE

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 11, 2018 – “A week ago, as I sat on the south bank of the St. Johns, my family and I enjoyed the fireworks and celebrations with our downtown as a backdrop. As the fun of the evening faded and we returned home, I spent some time reflecting about our city and our nation. My grandfathers and my father came to mind as I thought of the many men, women and families who have sacrificed by serving in our military to defend our way of life.

With these reflections in mind, I have decided that in addition to flying the United States flag, we should add the five military branch flags in an array around the National Colors in front of City Hall.

Jacksonville is a town with a long and rich history of service. We are home to military bases with active and reserve units. Thousands upon thousands of our city’s citizens have for decades agreed to put their lives on the line for our country and our freedoms.

To honor that long tradition, I want everyone who works in or visits City Hall to be reminded of the dedication of our Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. Therefore, today I have asked my staff to install the necessary hardware next to the National Colors in Hemming Park to let our military flags fly.”

– Mayor Lenny Curry
