Flag retirement ceremony on base reinforces reverence for national symbol

Members of the 193rd Special Operations Wing pay tribute to a U.S. flag as it is properly retired by Master Sgts. Richard Panzar (left) and Jeremy Fisher during a ceremony on base June 9. Spearheaded by the 193rd SOW First Sergeants Council, the flag retirement ceremony reinforced to military members and guests the protocol for disposing of flags that are tattered, worn, faded or otherwise unserviceable.
