American Legion commemorates Flag Day
Legionaries and the community gathered on June 14, Flag Day, to commemorate the service of worn and tattered U.S. flags. The leadership of American Legion Post 123 conducted a ceremony which concluded with the respectful burning of over 50 unserviceable flags. Commander Tim Moore stated, “It was a honor to pay our final respects to these symbols of our democracy and the ultimate sacrifices our service men and women have paid to guarantee our freedoms and way of life.” He went on to thank the community, friends, fellow veterans and families for participating in the ceremony. Post 123 also thanked the firefighters who were there to pay their respect and watch over the proceedings and burn.
