Flag retirement

Flag retirement

Devon Thompson of Wilton Children of the American Revolution brings a flag for retirement to Tom Moore, adjutant of Wilton’s American Legion Post 86. Post members held a flag retirement ceremony Sunday, Sept. 21, at their headquarters on Old Ridgefield Road. Each year the post takes ripped or worn American flags and burns them, the preferred method of taking them out of service. The community may leave unusable flags at the post throughout the year.
