Flag retirement | Snapshot

Gil Houston (right) is shown helping Herman Davis (left) replace the flag at his residence. Herman’s original flag was ready for retirement. Gil is the Americanism Chair of the Chico Elks Lodge #423. The lodge has a program wherein any Elk that notes a flag needing retirement – torn, severely faded, etc. – notifies the lodge and one of those reported is selected each month and the owner is given a brand new US-made flag to replace the one being retired. There is no charge to the recipient for the flag. Herman and his family were selected for May 2021. The retired flag is returned to the lodge where, if appropriate, the flag is cleaned, the canton is removed and the stars are removed and individually packaged as a part of the nationwide “Stars for Our Troops” program. All flags are properly retired according to the US Code of Flag Etiquette, usually by Boy Scout Troop 423 sponsored by the lodge.
