Today, June 22, 2022, marks the 10th anniversary of the death of
Lance Cpl. Eugene C. Mills, III, who was killed in the Line of Duty in
Afghanistan in 2012.
Mayor Craig A. Moe has ordered that the United States flag, Maryland flag,
and City flags at all City of Laurel buildings and facilities be lowered to
half-staff in his memory.
Lance Cpl. Mills was Laurel’s first Hometown Hero to receive a banner that
still flies high on Cherry Lane. Mayor Moe says the City was “honored to hang
this banner for a beloved member of the Laurel community,” who was tragically
killed while serving his country in the United States Marine Corp.
The flags will be flown at half-staff from 7 a.m. on Wednesday, June 22, 2022
until 7 am on Thursday, June 23, 2022.
