A Fitting End to a Dignified Life

Happy Flag Day. Tonight my boys and I were priviliged to attend and participate in a flag retirement ceremony at the American Legion here, the chartering organization for our Boy Scout troop. JJ and Nicky were part of the presentation guard, and two other boys in our troop assisted in the retirement of the flags.

Here are JJ and Nicky processing in with their flags.

Members of the Legion salute as the first of the flags are retired.

JJ and Nicky retiring a flag...very carefully! It was extremely hot.

Here are our good Americans...JJ, Nicky, Eli and his brother Patrick.

If you have any flags in less than stellar shape, call your local American Legion Post. Most do ceremonies such as this every year and would be more than happy to dispose of the symbol of our country in a fitting and dignified way.

God Bless America.
