Don Burgett folds flag
#1

Got this email this morning from my dear friend Don Burgett. Don said that the two other people in the photo were custodial staff, who perform this honor quite often.

 

Marion,

 

My family group's last day in Normandy before crossing the English channel to England the next morning.

 

Donald R. Burgett far right folds the American Flag at Retreat in the US Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach, Normandy, France. The Custodial Staff requested Donald R. Burgett to fold the Flag at Retreat; that ceremony takes place every evening at 17:00 hrs.

 

The honor of folding the American Flag at Retreat in the US Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach is an honor extended to very few. I am blessed.

 

Donald R. Burgett WWII, A Company, 506 PIR, 101st Abn.
