American Flag Retirement Ceremony

Do you have an American Flag that is tattered and faded such that it is no longer a suitable emblem of our country? Bring it to the Franklin-Sloan VFW Post 7383 [522 Reedy Creek Road, Cary, 27513]. We will dispose of your flag with dignity and respect in a moving ceremony to which the public is welcomed. Flag-retirement ceremonies are scheduled at the Post on special days and as needed.

The leader calls the ceremony to order and briefly addresses those in attendance. He or she calls for volunteers to place the flags on the fire. Young people are encouraged to volunteer.

1. Flags have been folded in the customary manner.

2. The fire is large enough and sufficiently intense to completely burn the flags.

3. The flags are placed on the fire at the direction of the leader.

4. Those assembled come to attention, salute the flags, and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. There follows a brief period of silent reflection.

5. After the flags are burned entirely, the fire is put out and the ashes are buried.
