Young Marine Program Delivers New Flag to Atlas Self Storage in CA


When marine Staff Sgt. Daniel Montegue noticed an old, tattered flag blowing in the wind at Atlas Self Storage in Twentynine Palms, Calif., he decided to use the symbol as a teaching moment for his young charges.

Montegue is the unit commander for the Young Marine Program at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms. The group replaced the flag with a new one in an official colors ceremony April 16.

“We wanted [the Young Marines] to understand that it’s not just a flag, it’s our country,” Montegue said. “It’s a reputation and sacrifice that we respect by honoring our flag.”
