American Legion Flag Day Ceremony
June 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Public welcome to help American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Missoula Civil Air Patrol and other veteran supporters place hundreds of tattered and old American and POW-MIA flags into ceremonial barrels. A brief program will start at 2 p.m. and then every person attending the ceremony will be asked to pick up a tattered flag and hand it gently to the fire marshal who is an Army veteran. We will continue giving tattered flags to the fire marshal for placement into the flames until all flags are consumed. The total effort, depending upon how many people come to help, will take in excess of two hours.
