Scouts Help Retire Flags in Duryea

DURYEA, Pa. -- Boy Scouts in Luzerne County teamed up with VFW Post 1227 to host a flag retirement ceremony on Saturday.

People came out to the VFW along Stephenson Street in Duryea to see the flags be collected and burned according to the process in the U.S. Flag Code.

The flags were respectfully burned to ash at the ceremony in Luzerne County.

    “Flag Burning” is a form of protest where activists torch the US Flag. Flag retirement is an official military ceremony where flags are retired from service. I’m not sure how you managed to get the information correct in the news story, but royally screwed up the headline.

    “Flag burning” could have been described much better. Whenever I read or hear about “flag burning,” it immediately triggers my patriotism.
