The United States Navy Ceremonial Guard visited the 9/11 Memorial and Museum on Tuesday and participated in a ceremonial presentation of an American flag.
The flag, which was previously flown at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, was accepted by President Joe Daniels and Chief People Officer Heidi Hayden, a US Marine veteran, on behalf of the 9/11 Memorial.
"The Navy has had a relationship with the city of New York for hundreds of years, which was only deepened by the terrorist attacks of 9/11," said Command Master Chief Christian Detje. "Today we thank the 9/11 Memorial and Museum for honoring that bond."
The Ceremonial Guard is visiting New York to march in the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade and participate in other outreach events.
