Today's Good Morning Saline greeting is from Saline resident Mary Hess, who asks residents to inspect their flags after a long winter, and make sure they are suitable for display this spring and summer.
We found this advice on several websites, including the Naval Air Station of Fort Lauderdale Museum page.
- If soiled, the flag may be washed or dry cleaned.
- When torn or frayed but not faded, the flag may be mended.
- A worn or faded flag should be retired with respect. Fold the flag and place it on a fire. The ashes should then be buried.
- The Saline American Legion Post has an outdoor container where residents can drop off flags for ceremonial retirement.
