Boy Scouts!

Spent a summer evening with the Boy Scouts in Nickerson, where members of the local troops gathered up flags for retirement. While any private citizen can retire a flag, it is commonly done by Scout troops and veteran’s associations, who have their own ceremony procedures. The most common way to retire a flag is through burning, as recommended in the U.S. Flag Code.

Never having been to a retirement ceremony before, it was pretty neat to watch and these scouts definitely took their duties seriously.
