Burning Your American Flag Properly
Flying your American flag proudly can prove to be exhausting, at least for the flag! My dad, who is a retired Marine flies his Marine Corps flag, along with his American flag every day and night, above his entrance to his home. But with the Tri-cities wind, they definitely see their fair share of wear and tear! Eventually, they just wear out completely and need to be replaced. But what do you do with a worn out, beat up, torn up flag? Did you know there is a proper way to dispose of your flag?
Well, there is, and on Saturday, March 11th, at 1:00 p.m., the Prosser VFW, is holding their Flag burning ceremony. You can retire your Flag and have it properly disposed of at this time. This is a very educational and emotional event and the public is invited to participate.
I have attended these ceremonies in the past and they are very touching. Watching these Veterans salute the flag for the final time, gets me in the feelers! You can choose to participate if you'd like! Or, you are welcome to drop your flag off at the Smith-Runa Post 3207, located at 1101 Wine Country RD in Prosser, during regular business hours, between now and Saturday.
I will most certainly be attending this event, once again, and I will be bringing my Veteran father with me! If you have a Veteran in your life, I encourage you to grab them this Saturday and be part of this! At the very least, they might just enjoy their visit with other local Veterans. We hope to see you all at the Prosser VFW on Saturday and thanks to all the Veterans who fought for our freedom!
