Happy 246th Birthday to the Army and Flag Day!

Updated: Jul 2, 2021

Flag Day, which falls on June 14 and the birthday of the United States Army, is meant to commemorate the adoption of the “Stars and Stripes” as the United State’s official flag.

When an American flag is worn beyond repair, it should be retired in a respectful manner. One way to dispose of an American flag properly is to hold a flag retirement ceremony. Today, several members of our American Legion family held a flag burning ceremony to show honor and respect.
