Twenty flags will be retired, nineteen flags will be dedicated to a specific Veteran who is deceased, the last flag will be dedicated to all of the Veterans, men and women who have served our great country during war and peace time.

This ceremony shows the correct way to retire an unserviceable flag with dignity and honor. The public is invited, and there is no charge. Chairs will also be provided for your comfort.
