Flag retirement ceremony scheduled for tonight in Chadron

Veterans organizations in Chadron are calling on the public to attend a ceremony to demonstrate how to properly retire American Flags that are too old or torn for further use.
 
When Old Glory becomes worn, faded or badly soiled, it is time to replace it with a new flag. Honor Guard Commander John Dueker says the old flag needs to be retired with dignity and respect with the traditional method of incineration.
 
The public is invited to attend and bring flags to the ceremony. It starts at 7 p.m. at the American Legion Post on Bordeaux Street.
