West Seattle Veterans Day scene: Scouts retire a flag

November 11, 2013 at 9:32 pm | In Holidays, West Seattle beaches, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

Just before sunset, one final solemn ceremony on this Veterans Day: Scout Troop 375, based in Burien, came to Alki for a formal flag-retirement ceremony. More than two dozen people joined them.

With flames and Taps, as per tradition, the flag was taken out of service.

The troop and Scoutmaster Mark Ufkes had invited community members to bring flags for a future retirement event; some did. (No date set yet.)
