Special Flag Ceremony City of Orange

This Wednesday flag lowering ceremony at the town circle in Orange was different as we had a lot of guests and new attendees along with an Iraq veteran in attendance. There was even a small video crew filiming for some show or other.   It's a simple ceremony to lower the flag and fold it in the military style as a show of respect, honoring those that served and show of patriotism for Flag and Country.  A row of people on each side of the flag pole help fold the flag in the tri-fold.  There is call to attention, salute, lowering the flag and then the fold as it passes by each person taking part.  Some of those in attendance are vets from WWII, Korea Vietnam and now Iraq and Desert Storm.
