The American flag has been an emblem of freedom for our nation since June of 1775. It has waved proudly in our streets, been draped over our heroes’ caskets, and been folded delicately to be presented to the families of the fallen.

We are taught that flags should be disposed of respectfully, according to the Flag Code, but these ceremonies are not ones we have the opportunity to witness often.
