Players and staff from the Seattle Seahawks visit Naval Station Everett June 25th as part of the 12 Flag Tour. During the visit, Sailors met with them, gave them a tour of USS Sampson (DDG 102) and raised and signed the Seahawks’ 12 flag.
In October 2016, the Seattle Seahawks gave the US Navy the 12 Flag during a change of command ceremony. The flag passed from the Marine Corps, who held the flag from 2015-16. The flag will travel to sea and shore units across Navy Region Northwest from 2016-17, where Sailors and Navy civilians will sign and take photos with it.
