The Mayor's flagpole will stand empty until Pitts returns home with the flag. "We will leave the flagpole empty, and the void in the office will be a constant reminder of the void in the hearts of the families," Fedeli said after presenting the flag to Pitts.

Leaving North Bay for the mission will be Cpl. Andrew MacLean and Master Cpl. Dale Degagne, both stationed at CFB North Bay, and Warrant Officer Neil Pitts, who leads a team of recruiters at the Canadian Forces Recruiting Centre at Main and Ferguson Streets.
