In addition to honoring veterans, a local troup is also honoring the flag.

Boy Scout Troop 60 held a flag retirement ceremony at the Christ United Methodist Church.

Over 350 American flags were properly removed from service by burning.

The flags were collected through the Bryan and College Station fire departments this past summer for an Eagle Scout project.

Flag retirement ceremonies offer the chance to show respect for the flag while expressing gratitude to those individuals who protect our country.
