A day dedicated to the proper disposal of the American flag, June 14th is traditionally known as, "Flag Day." What may or may not be more commonly known is that the act of retiring our country's flags is respectfully disciplined. During this day, volunteers present the aged flags as well as their prior whereabouts and then the flags are not to be thrown away - but burned. Timothy Langford, Assistant Director of Education for the American Legion confirms that afterward, "...There will be a speech about the importance of the flag, and then the flags will be committed to the fire that has been built for proper disposal.”
