Flag Retirement Ceremonies in District 12

We consider the proper retirement of American, Texas and other significant flags very important.

We have several American Legion Posts in Tarrant County that participate in at least one "properly conducted" flag retirement ceremony each year.
Several Posts have ceremonies on Flag Day and Post 516 has a ceremony at dusk on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
Additional ceremonies may be scheduled partnering with Girl and Boy Scouts, Sons of the American Revolution and others participating and we invite you to attend.
Flags can be dropped off at any American Legion Post. Post 516 is open every day except Monday, including weekends until at least 5pm. Flags may be left with anyone present and we will take care of them until they can be retired, please let us know where the flag was flown.
Information and directions to Post 516 and others in the District
