Annual Flag Retirement Ceremony

 

On Wednesday September 18th, Veterans of Foreign War Post 9779 held its annual Flag Retirement Ceremony to honor the symbol of our American freedom, the American Flag, as they were retired from duty.  These flags are no longer serviceable but they have served us as a reminder of our nation and those who have defended our freedom.  

Commander Sivret explained that The United States Flag Code states: “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”
