3 comments on “Backyard Flag Retirement

    • Retiring flags is when old flags that are no longer fit for use are destroyed in a solemn and reverent manner. The purpose is to render them no longer flags so that they are not disposed of in the trash or some other disrespectful mode. This is the means authorized by Congress and is far, far different than the burning done in protest. Quite the opposite really. Flag retirement is typically done by civic organizations like the Boy Scouts, the VFW, the American Legion and the like.

      As far as the number 12, it was just a coincidence.

  1. I just want to let you know how very much I appreciate receiving all your posts, whether they involve fire updates, weather, hiking trails, or your children’s activities. Your efforts provide an invaluable community service, in my opinion, and I am more than grateful to be a recipient of the posts.
