NAPLES, Fla. - Dozens of Boy Scouts gathered at Freedom Park in Naples to retire hundreds of American flags this Veteran's Day.
Traditionally, the ceremony can only be done by Scouts or military.
The young men took apart the stars and strips for some flags, and folded others. They then burned each flag, nearly 300 in all.
The Scouts got the flags from the local American Legion and VFW. Some veterans also came to the ceremony to retire their own flags.
