Longview veterans hold flag retirement

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Proper honors were given in a ceremony dedicated to our nations colors Saturday.

At Longview VFW post 1183, a formal flag retirement ceremony was held. Flags retired from East Texas businesses and city centers were honorably unfolded and cut, separating the field of stars from the stripes, and then ceremonially burned.

Around 100 flags, some as large as 100 feet, were given honors.
