In August 2011, the StarNews reported that an American flag on a flagpole couldn’t stay on the undeveloped reserve island. It was placed there by an anonymous group of veteran supporters.
The StarNews said the memorial might be moved to Carolina Beach.
Ed Parvin, the assistant town manager, spoke with N.C. Wildlife officials about moving the pole to the boat launch. However, he said that in the end, there ended up being damage to the flagpole that resulted in it being unusable.
