A ceremony to retire the American Flag.When: Wed, Feb 18, 2009 9:30 PM - Wed, Feb 18, 2009 10:00 PM PST
Who organized the event
Following the campfire social program put on by the Alamitos Staff, we will conduct a retirement ceremony to retire an American Flag.
This ceremony is one that can be perfomed only by members of the US Marine Corps, or by members of the Boy Scouts of America. Eagle Scouts Paul Brooks, Patrick Renfrew and Johnathan Jainu will lead the ceremony, discussing some of the history behind the Flag, the origins of the Retirement Ceremony and the ways that any American citizen, not just the Marines and the Boy Scouts, can respectfully retire an Ameican Flag.
We will concluded by retiring the American Flag that until recently, hung on the flag pole in front of the CLA Building.

This is the script I adapted from a few versions of the flag retirement ceremony. We had the attendees read one part each to get them involved in the ceremony.
