The Southern Ute veterans Association donated a brand-new American Flag to the Ignacio Community Library. Howard Richards Sr. and Bruce LeClaire are seen here, hoisting the new flag into position on Friday, Nov. 19.
Members of the Southern Ute Veterans Association, Commander Howard Richards Sr., Treasurer Bruce LeClair, and Rod Grove take down a tattered flag at the Ignacio Community Library.
Flag protocol, particular to the American Flag, specifies a flag must only be flown at night if lit and replaced if the condition of a flag become worn or tattered.
Southern Ute Vietnam Veterans, Rod Grove and Howard Richards Sr. carefully fold the retired flag into the traditional triangle for stowage — the Southern Ute Veterans Association would summarily burn the retired flag in accordance with flag protocol.
