Last Monday, we had the good fortune to attend the Memorial Day Service at Friendly Center. Each year, promptly at 8am, veterans began the ceremony of putting up the flags. (The flags remain at half mast until after 12 noon). The event is sponsored by the Marine Corps League of Greater Greensboro. Here we see attending veterans lined up and saluting as three marines raised the flag on the main flagpole. In the back left, Major Gregory A. Wynn can be seen participating in his final ceremony in Greensboro. He has been promoted to lieutenant colonel and will relocate to New York with his family.
