The Union Jack is Back

05 June 2019

05 June 2019


“Today across the Navy, at morning colors, ships are hoisting the traditional Union Jack. A version of this Jack that flew in ports throughout the Pacific as the Navy island hopped its way across that vast ocean and in the Atlantic as it supported operations to liberate the European continent. It’s deeply connected to our maritime heritage and our rise as a global nation and our continued role as a global superpower.” - CNO ADMIRAL JOHN M. RICHARDSON at the Battle of Midway Sea of White Commemoration - June 4th, 2019
