Members of American Legion Post 195, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 8346 and AMVETS Post 33 recently joined together for an annual tradition: the disposal -- through burning -- of unserviceable American flags. The ceremony took place at VFW Post 8346’s headquarters in Ridgeway, with all three posts participating in different parts of the ceremony.
