Veterans, Scouts Retire American Flags With Honor

By Tammy Prine

Despite an afternoon of steady rain a group of military veterans and Boy Scouts came together Nov. 21, at the Medal of Honor Park in Belle Chasse, La., to retire nearly 100 tattered and torn American Flags. The flag retirement ceremony was sponsored by the Viet Nam Vets/Legacy Vets Motorcycle Club (VNV/LV MC, A Chapter,  La.) in association with Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Troop 378, from Gretna.
