Sunset Beach, Cape May Point. Sunset Flag Ceremony. June 11, 2008.
The man in black is Larry Tremblay, Sr. He lost his son Joey, Joseph S. Tremblay, in Iraq in 2005. The flag that is being folded is Corporal Tremblay’s casket flag. Each day from Memorial Day to October since 1973, a different US veteran’s casket flag is flown over Sunset Beach and a flag ceremony is held at sunset. This was one of the most moving events I’ve ever experienced.
