Descendants of Oliver Hazard Perry to present "Don't Give up the Ship" flag to Navy Rear Admiral Greg Nosal aboard 'USS De Wert'

In a symbolic transfer of command, the direct descendants of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry will present Navy Rear Admiral Greg Nosal with the "Don't Give up the Ship" flag in a Longboat Rowing ceremony hosted by the Perry Group at the Port of Cleveland on Aug. 30, 2012.

The United States Navy will be commemorating the War of 1812 during Navy Week in Cleveland Aug. 27 through Sept. 4, 2012. The presentation of the flag from Perry's descendants to Rear Admiral Greg Nosal is representative of Perry himself passing on the motto "Don't Give up the Ship" to the modern Navy. The Navy has instituted this slogan for 200 years since Perry's historic triumph on the waters of Lake Erie.

The 'Friends of Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial', also known as The Perry Group, is a volunteer, 501c3 non-profit organization working with the National Park Service and the local, national, and international community to commemorate the Battle of Lake Erie and celebrate the long-lasting peace between Britain, Canada and the United States.
