Flag Day Celebration in Charlottesville

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds came out to the nTelos Wireless Pavilion in Charlottesville for a very special Flag Day celebration Tuesday night.

The audience heard a speech from Captain Damon Armeni who was wounded in battle several years ago. Captain Armeni then led a group of new military recruits in a swearing-in ceremony.

"To see a bunch of high-ranking officers and to be around them… and to swear in in front of those high-ranking officers gives you the feel of what you'll be feeling in the army," said Private Tyler Swanson of the United States Army.

The ceremony was followed by a patriotic performance from the Charlottesville Municipal Band.
