THS ROTC Flag Retirement Ceremony

Friday, November 22, 2019

Ten MPMS students attended the Thomasville High School Flag Burning Ceremony on Friday, November 22nd. The THS Color-guard and ROTC students stood at attention as the retired United States Flags were burned. ROTC leaders read the procedures for retiring flags that have been damaged or simply "worn-out". The history of the flag was read to the crowd of dignitaries as MPMS students listened. One MPMS 8th-grade student commented that the ceremony was particularly sad to him as the flags were added to the fire.
