A flag that was flown on board the San Antonio-Class Amphibious Transport Dock, USS NEW YORK (LPD 21) on May 10, 2010 will be flown that day on the Cemetery Flag Pole. LPD 21 was built with steel from the World Trade Center. SGT Robert Contini (NY Army National Guard) will play Taps and Parishioner Ken Schweitzer will play America the Beautiful.
