The City of Destin has lowered its American and state flags in respect for the 11 service members who lost their lives in a helicopter crash in Santa Rosa Sound on March 10. Gov. Rick Scott issued a directive for flags to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout the State of Florida until sunset on March 20.
The mayor, city council and city offer their sincere gratitude for the sacrifice these individuals made for our city, state and country. This loss of life is tragic and will not be forgotten as we have them to thank for all of our freedoms.
