Boy Scout Nick Patch, 11, from troop #1141 in Erda, puts a flag into the fire during a flag retirement ceremony at the Tooele Veteran’s Square June 13, 2009. Twenty-four flags were retired during the ceremony.

“When a flag is so worn it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner. ”
