Flag Retirement Ceremony 2017

By: Sarai Narvaez

The Port Saint Lucie High School Jaguar Battalion held its annual Service Learning event, a U.S. Flag Retirement ceremony, at the school.  The Jaguars retired unserviceable American Flags in accordance with the U.S. Flag Code.  The Jaguars’ Band took part in the ceremony playing Taps, reveille, retreat, and the National Anthem. We appreciate Mrs. Wiley, the band, and Principal Ocampo for participating in the event.

The Color Guard was commanded by Cadet Captain Travis Cetin carrying the National flag. Cadet Staff Sergeant Patrick Archer carried the State Flag, Cadet Sergeant 1st Class Hayley Pollard carried the Battalion Flag, and Cadet Sergeant 1st class Marco Nadar and Cadet Sergeant 1st Class De’vonte Cousar posted as Guards.  The Jaguar Battalion gives a special thanks to all those who were part of of the ceremony.
