Flags Aloft

As far as I know, this is not a holiday, and besides, I see the same flags every day when I ride my bike.

One of the reasons that I am so happy to live in this little town.

This is what I saw on my morning bicycle ride, about 3 miles just riding around our neighborhood. I usually do a 5 mile pattern but today you only get to see 60% of what I see every day

Of course there are winners and there are losers and this is no different. You know who the winners really are.

I was a Scout, (60 years ago) so the thought occurred to me.

He had a noisy dog. He will see it on the way to work.

We had some real winds recently. There were many furled and tangled and probably lost.

I was a Scout (and don't remember) but my son's Pack would have campouts and on Sat night before chow they would have a "retirement" ceremony for soiled flags.

Our troop was sponsored by some Air Force families and so we had a guy with a bugle play taps and all of that stuff. They had a special ceremonial stainless steel incinerator.

There was no food involved that I can recall but I do remember them reading the names of some local guys who were shot down in Vietnam.

Just for information, your local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) or American Legion posts have flag disposal facilities.

Just drop them off there for respectful handling.
