This morning, over 25 Hingham High School Students (comprised of the Veterans Appreciation Club, Women's Hockey & the Wrestling teams) installed over 1,100 US flags at the Hingham High School Turf Field in observance of Patriot Day, "in honor of the individuals who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and the Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice in the wars that followed."
Hingham's own "Flag-Man" Tom Hoffman provided the supplies, and with assistance from USMC Veteran Scott McMillan, the students completely encircled the field in over 90 minutes.
“We should all feel a sense of PRIDE in the youth of our community, and those who continue to show respect for our ‘one Nation, under God!’ I for one, remain forever grateful for America's resolve in the midst of the horrors of 9/11. Well done to all of the volunteers,” shared Keith Jermyn, SCPO Keith Jermyn, USN, Hingham Director of Veterans' Services.
