What do you do with tattered old American flags? Military etiquette dictates that worn flags be burned in a “retirement ceremony.” The burning is to symbolize purification and rebirth when performed. 

 

On Tuesday, December 12, The Chennault Aviation and Military Museum will  hold a solemn flag retirement program at  6:00 p.m.  The ceremony will be performed by representatives from veterans’ organizations and first responders.
