District Two recognized Patriot Day 2014 in a unified observance on September 11. For the first time, all district offices participated in a coordinated and simultaneous event.
The morning began at the district office when Florida Army National Guard Lt. Colonel Kevin Becar addressed the employees. Lt. Colonel Becar’s inspirational message was video-cast across the district. At the conclusion of his remarks, employees from each office gathered outside at their offices.
Our nation’s flag was lowered to half-staff on each office’s respective flag pole followed by the pledge of allegiance. A moment of silence was observed by all. Lt. Colonel Becar was front and center at the district office flag pole to render the appropriate military honors.
