FLAG FLYING OVER FORT MONROE AGAIN

May 24, 2012 – After an absence of eight months, the American flag is flying once again from Fort Monroe’s main pole. In accordance with military protocol, the flag was lowered during an Army decommissioning ceremony in September 2011 and preserved at the fort’s Casemate Museum.
