Flag Day tradition celebrated with flag retirement in Hearne
On June 14, 2013 the American Legion and VFW sponsored a flag burning to retire old and wore down American flags. This event was held at Chandler Park at 10:30a.m.
VFW Commander, Ed Luster, and the American Legion Commander, Chuck Carlson, lead the event with a salute to the American Flag and the pledge. Luster’s granddaughter, Jayda Vega, led the pledge.
Other local veterans that attended the ceremony were Andrew Cannon and Delfino Sifuentes.
The ceremony was small but had a great impact on those involved.
