Residents of the Washington Soldiers Home and Colony in Orting and members of the Air Force Sergeants Association-JBLM celebrated Flag Day (June 14) by raising a garrison flag donated by the Mary Ball Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The ceremony was abruptly cut short by a problem with one of the clips attached to the halyard.  Woodrow Wilson formally declared June 14 to be Flag Day in 1916, and Congress established National Flag Day in 1949.  Resident Greg Heiden, Retired US Army is seen here as part of the ceremony.
