Respectful retirement

Ray Marsh, Mexia VFW commander, at left, is joined by Chuck Howard and Chuck’s dog Tinker Bell as they prepare worn U.S. flags prior to a flag retirement ceremony held at the post Sept. 21. When a U.S. flag is no longer in good condition, such ceremonies are held to properly and respectfully dispose of them by fire.
