Veterans National Memorial in Fort Wayne Hosting Flag retirement ceremony Saturday 

News Release

FORT WAYNE — The Allen County Council of Veterans Organizations in conjunction with local Boy Scouts from area troops, will be retiring old American Flags on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Most flags have been collected at local American Legion Posts and also dropped off at the Veterans Memorial for proper disposal.

If you have an American Flag that is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting
emblem of display, it should be retired in a dignified manner, preferably by fire.

Anyone wishing to retire a used flag that no longer can be flown properly or have
American flags that are non-serviceable, can be dropped off at the Veterans
National Memorial Shrine and Museum prior to the event at 2122 O’Day Road
Fort Wayne. They can also be brought out on the day of the event on
Saturday from 2 pm to 7 pm.

Call the Veterans National Memorial Shrine and Museum at 260-267-5022 for
more information.
