Peru will host event to properly get rid of torn flags

With all the flags flying on Memorial Day, did you notice any that have seen better days? There is a right way to get rid of a tattered and torn flag.

There’s a flag retirement ceremony Tuesday, June 14th at Veteran’s Park in Peru. Boy scouts will help veterans properly retire the flags that day.

According to the U.S. Flag Code, an American flag should be destroyed in a “dignified way”, preferably by burning it.
