David Furst is the Morning Edition Host for New Jersey Public Radio. He joined NJPR in 2012. He was born and raised in the Garden State so he really has no excuse if he pronounces the name of your town wrong.
Over 40 years ago, World War II veteran Martin Hume, 93, had friends in mind when he came up with the idea for a nightly flag ceremony. It was the start of a seasonal New Jersey tradition that continues to this day. It kicks off over Memorial Day weekend.
"I wanted to honor two of my best friends that I lost at Pearl Harbor," Hume said.
The ceremony is held on Sunset Beach in Cape May, N.J., beginning 30 minutes before sunset. It runs every evening through September.
