Flag Raising Honors

23 10 2010

During the performance of the National Anthem three members of the Twins Platoon had the honor of raising the American flag during the 50th Anniversary of the Minnesota Twins Baseball organization. Clayton Carr, who fought and was severely wounded in the Battle of Hue City during TET 1968, is pictured saluting old glory after raising the flag on September 3, 2010. Mark Nelsen, Jeff Barnes and his brother Bill Barnes, also a Vietnam veteran, were the flag raisers for the other two days of the celebration weekend.
