Amercan Flag Retirement Ceremony 

Folks in Belfast with an American Flag that was in rough shape could bring it to their local VFW Sunday to have it disposed properly.The Randall Collins VFW Post held a retirement event.Judge advocate for the post, William Sullivan says there is a process to follow when retiring an American Flag.First, the flag should be folded in its customary manner and then placed on fire.Once the flag is completely burned the ashes need to be buried.” We have a special place up in the cemetery we bury them. We get them all done and we take them up there and bury them the proper way they’re suppose to be done.”Sullivan says anyone with questions about the process can contact the post at 338-2358.
