HUNTINGTON — A ceremony at noon Thursday will be held at the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument in Huntington’s Memorial Park to dedicate six new flags, one for each branch of the military, that have been added to the memorial.

During the ceremony, the colors will be presented, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. As each flag is dedicated, the official song for that military branch will be played. Remarks will be given.

The Gold Star Families Memorial Monument was organized and funded by The Southside Preservation and Enhancement Alliance Inc. and the Woody Williams Foundation and was dedicated in October 2023.

The event is free and open to the public.
