A special ceremony was held in Ebensburg on Saturday to retire an American flag. The Cambria Care Center wanted to replace the flag outside of it’s facility and invited the public to take part in the retirement ceremony.
Joined by the VFW, Dauntless Fire Company, and local boy scouts the flag lowered from the pole.
VFW Commander Robert Slebodnick said it is important to remember what the flag represents and Saturday’s ceremony was an important teaching lesson for the younger generation.
The retired flag will be burned and the VFW will bury the ashes.
