At NSC, Old Glory Flies Again
Last spring, the flag that normally flies in front of the Neuroscience Center Bldg. developed a tear and needed to be replaced. John Hamill, retired former chief of NIDA’s Research and Development Contracts Management Branch, reached out to U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin’s office for a replacement.
Within a day, Cardin’s staff responded with a promise to send a flag. Shortly thereafter, the new flag arrived, along with a certificate stating that it had previously flown over the U.S. Capitol dome.
The certificate is now on view at the entrance to NSC.
