“We are facing a very serious situation,” North Shore Schools Board of Education President Dr. Igor Webb told the Record Pilot. “We do not yet have a full sense of the issues that might be involved. We just received this information last week… We are just beginning to try to figure out a strategy but the numbers are scary.”

Twenty-one gun salutes are a naval tradition that date back to the age of sail, when a salute was fired by a man-of-war entering a foreign harbor to show that its guns were not loaded and, thus, was entering on friendly terms. It later evolved into a 21-gun salute for dignitaries and heads of state that were visiting naval vessels. After the Civil War, both Army and Naval installations equipped with cannon would fire 21-gun salutes on two National Holidays—on Memorial Day and July 4th. Today, Naval installations and ships equipped with saluting batteries fire a 21 minute-gun salute on Memorial Day, with the first shot commencing at precisely noon, and the last shot ending at 12:20 p.m. The Navy fires an additional 21-gun salute on George Washington’s birthday.
