MIDDLETOWN - The volume has been turned down at a Navy base in New Jersey after neighbors complained about noise from its flag ceremony.

Those living near Weapons Station Earle's waterfront in Middletown at 8 a.m. hear the "Call to Colors" followed by "The Star-Spangled Banner" when the base raises its flag. A similar ceremony takes place at sunset when the flag is lowered.

Base spokesman Michael Brady tells the Asbury Park Press that a new public address system was installed during the summer. Brady says officials are using sound meters to adjust the volume.

News 12 New Jersey spoke to the neighbors who filed the complaint, who confirm the volume has been turned down.
