Flag Retirement Ceremony Begins

Kyle – United States Code states: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America.  The Flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.  The flags we are retiring tonight have been inspected and were found to be no longer suitable for display.

Mr. Rossi – Reading of The Star-Spangled Banner.

Mr.  Rossi – Tonight, we will retire this great symbol of freedom throughout the world.  Please remain silent until directed otherwise.  Absolute dignity must be maintained throughout the entire ceremony.

Eric – Just a simple piece of colored cloth; sewn together in a red, white and blue design.  A piece of cloth that of itself does nothing more than hang or blow in the wind.  Each flag does not only represent its own history but that of every flag that has flown before it.  To many millions of people throughout our nation’s glorious history, it has stood tall, standing as a monument of Freedom for all Americans.  Men and women have given their lives for it, fought for it, cried for it and revered it as a symbol of the greatest country on earth.  Books, songs, and poems have been written for it, and our National Anthem was inspired by it.  Each day children are encouraged to pledge their allegiance to it, and whenever it is raised or passes by, we all place our hands over our hearts or salute it.  It stands for freedom we all share and the pride and patriotism we feel for our country.

John Robert – I was born on June 14, 1777.  I am more than cloth just shaped into a design.  I am the refuge of the world’s oppressed people.  I am the silent sentinel of freedom.  I am the emblem of the greatest sovereign nation on earth.  I am the inspiration for which American Patriots gave their lives and fortunes.  I have led your sons into battle from Valley Forge to the blistering desert of the Arabian Peninsula.  I walked in silence with each of your honored dead to their final resting place beneath the silent white crosses row upon row.  I have flown through peace and war, strife and prosperity, and amidst it all I have been respected.  “Old Glory” is my nickname; proudly I wave on high.  Honor me, respect me, defend me with your lives and your fortunes.  Never let my enemies tear me down from my lofty position lest I never return.  Keep alight the fires of patriotism, strive earnestly for the spirit of democracy.  Worship Eternal God and keep His commandments, and I shall remain the bulwark of peace and freedom for all people.  For, I AM YOUR FLAG.

Kyle – We will now begin to retire the flags.  If any visiting Cub Scout would like to participate, please form a single file line over to my right where Den-Chief John Robert is standing.  You will be given a flag or a portion of a flag.  Only one person may enter the fire ring at a time.  Our Fire-Masters Hunter or Justin will guide you.  Please exit the fire ring on the opposite side to my left when directed to do so.

Mr. Rossi – Troop 215 would like to thank you all for being a part of this special and somber occasion.  Please honor our nation and join in the singing of “God Bless America”.  When the song is completed, please depart from the fire in quiet dignity, and please watch your step as you make your way back to the parking lot.


God bless America, land that I love

Stand beside Her, and guide Her

Through the night, with the light from above.

From the mountains, to the prairies,

To the oceans white with foam.

God bless America my home sweet home.

God bless America my home sweet home.
