Members of the Army Color Guard wait to bring in the flag while a large U.S. flag hangs from firetrucks behind them at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, July 27, 2011. The medical center held a ceremony Wednesday to officially "case the colors" as a transition to medical services at Bethesda Naval Medical Center and Ft. Belvoir. The flags of the various Walter Reed medical units were retired by rolling them up and covering them. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
