Charlestown flag display marks Memorial Day, aid Wounded Warriors

The Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville kicked off its commemoration of Memorial Day on Saturday with an exhibition of more than 500 full-size American flags.

The display, known as the Charlestown Field of Honor Veterans Tribute, raises money for the Wounded Warrior Project and the Charlestown Benevolent Care Fund. Each flag was “sponsored” by businesses and residents for $35 each.

On Saturday, the community on Maiden Choice Lane hosted an event featuring the Maryland National Guard Honor Guard presenting colors; the National Anthem sung by Julia Tucker; the Charlestown VFW Post; the Civil Air Patrol and the Lansdowne Junior ROTC. 

Hubbard Funeral Home presented the event.
