NYPD Flag Flys Into Harmís Way

The NYPD and the FDNY have received a great honor from the officers and shipís company of two ships of the US NAVY. The ships have requested the department flags of the NYPD and the FDNY to be flown as battle ensigns on those ships.

USS RAMAGE DDG 61 http://members.tripod.de/usnavy/dd/ddg61.htm and the USS BARRY DDG 52 http://members.tripod.de/usnavy/dd/ddg52.htm are guided missile destroyers

The department flag of the NYPD already flies proudly as a battle ensign from the mast of the USS RAMAGE.

This is a great honor for the men and women of the NYPD.
We hope to have photos of the flags flying on both ships.

Here is the flag of the FDNY at a recent memorial service:
