Most of us know that once an American flag is worn, torn, or otherwise in need of being retired, we’re supposed to burn it.
But most of us probably aren’t in any position to burn one properly.
Going in and out of so many homes each year, I see people with flags that need to be retired, just sitting in the garage, or basement. Most likely because nobody ever motivates to figure out where to bring a flag to be properly retired.
So, with today being Flag Day, I thought it would be a good idea to send along where you can bring any flags you have that need to be retired.
In our area, you can bring your flags to your local American Legion, VFW, or Amvets. If you know a Boy Scout, you could contact their troop and ask if they will be accepting flags for retirement any time soon. Typically around Flag Day, there are several flag retirement ceremonies.
Hope that comes in handy for you now or in the future!
