May 21, 2011 Retiring Old Glory at Veteran’s Welcome Home Celebration   Leave a comment

After completing our ‘clean-up’ committee tasks at the Veteran’s Welcome Home Celebration, this group of Firefighters began the task of retiring Old Glory. The synchronized ballet between ladder truck operators and Firefighters on the ground was simply amazing! 

First the ladder trucks lowered their ladders slowly until the Firefighters could catch the bottom of the flag, assuring flag protocol was followed.  Slowly the flag was lowered while the Firefighters took special care to assure our flag never touched the ground.  I feel honored to be surrounded by so many brave men and women! 

Thank You Past and Present Military Personal and Thank You Family members of the Military. 

Thank You Past and Present Firefighters and Police Officers and Thank You Family members of Firefighters and Police Officers!

Flag Size:  30 feet X 60 feet
