Dignified Disposal

Friday, June 14, 2019
Having been inspected and deemed unserviceable in a worthy cause, a retired American flag is disposed of in the burn pit at the Greencastle American Legion Veterans Plaza Friday evening. Sons of the American Legion Sergeant-at-Arms Jeff Bray salutes the flag that has become faded and worn as members of the Legion and VFW Honor Guard stand at attention. More than 50 people, including uniformed police and firefighters, attended the Flag Day ceremony at Legion Post 58.

  • Thank you Jared Jernagan for covering the Greencastle AL Post's Flag Day ceremony on June 14, 2019. And thanks to the public, Honor Guard, all uniformed Putnam County Sheriff Department, Greencastle city police and fire departments and the Putnam County Operation Life for their support.
