Local Boy Scout Troop 321 joined members of the Williamson Fire Department on Flag Day to ceremoniously retire nearly 40 American Flags by burning them, which is considered to be the most honorable and respectful method of disposal once they have completed their terms of service. Scout Leader Matthew Gilliam said these flags had been turned in to the scout troop as well as the WFD by local schools and other agencies at different times over past several months requesting that they be properly retired.
