Flag retirement ceremony set for Veterans Day


In conjunction with Veterans Day, the City of Milton Fire Department will host a Flag Retirement Ceremony at the event area of South Riverwalk Park, South Willing Street, at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 11, 2016. During this event, members of the department, assisted by the Santa Rosa County Firefighters Association Honor Guard, Veterans Groups, Boy Scouts, and other community groups, will respectfully retire worn United States Flags over an open fire.

“We realized that the City of Milton has amassed a number of worn flags in need of retirement,” said Fire Chief John E. Reble. “We felt that this event would be a good way for us to address this need and a safe means for others to respectfully retire their worn flags.”

Members of the public are invited to attend and bring their worn, faded, or tattered U.S. flags to be presented for retirement during this event. “Bring a lawn chair and come join us,” Reble said.
