TRIBUTE: The 9/11 U.S. Honor Flag was placed today amid the photos, flowers and other tributes to slain Jersey City rookie Police Officer Melvin Santiago at the department’s West District precinct after arriving at Newark International Airport from Dallas.

The flag first flew during recovery operations at Ground Zero and has since traveled more than six million miles to honor fallen firefighters, police officers and members of the U.S. armed forces at more than 1,000 events.

It also flew aboard the final NASA space shuttle mission, circling the Earth 215 times.

Today it was accompanied by a full procession from Newark to Jersey City, including officers from Fair Lawn and Saddle Brook.
