Post 2485 Adjutant Jerry Chaplin Presents Ceremonial Flag

The certificate and flag presented to our post tells it all. Here's the text of the certificate ...

Let it be known that this flag was flown on the 11th day of September, 2015 over   the United States Army Corps of Engineers Transatlantic Afghanistan District Headquarters, Bagram Airfield Afghanistan. 

This flag represents the will and resolve of the American people to protect those who cannot protect themselves and to stand strong and defeat all who attempt to bring us harm.
