Tomorrow Morning the US Flag Will Be Raised In Havana *BOG Post* [View all]



Raising the Flag at U.S. Embassy Havana

U.S. Department of State

Published on Aug 12, 2015

A New Chapter for the United States and Cuba

On January 4, 1961, U.S. Marines Jim Tracy, F.W. "Mike" East, and Larry C. Morris assigned to U.S. Embassy Havana lowered the American flag outside the embassy for the last time. For 54 years, the soldiers’ warm affection for the Cuban people never wavered. And neither did their belief that, one day, they would reunite to raise the flag again.

On August 14, 2015, these three U.S. Marines reunite and join Secretary of State John Kerry to re-open the U.S. Embassy in Havana, Cuba. Watch this video as they reflect on the past and look towards the future.
