On October 17, 2007 United States Army National Guard Captain John P. Reynolds, of the 1st Battalion, 69th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division, attended a meeting of the Stony Point Police Commission to present the Regimental Flag of the “Fighting 69th “ to the Stony Point Policemen’s Benevolent Association. The presentation was made in recognition of the association’s support of the unit during its deployment in Iraq. Upon receiving the Regimental Flag, Stony Point Police Sergeant Robert F. Chewens manufactured an oak display case to house the flag.
The Regimental Flag proudly hangs in the meeting room of our police facility.
