Retiring of the flags

In the memory of the lives lost on 9/11 and the first responders of the attacks, American Legion Post 39 held a Flag Retirement ceremony at Abilene Rodeo Stadium. 

According to the American Legion’s Unserviceable Flags Ceremony, the proper and ethical way to dispose of an unserviceable American Flag includes burning it.
