The American Legion Swaskegame Post 14 held a flag disposal ceremony Saturday morning at its facility in downtown Kingman. "We're cremating American flags because we treat them as military personnel," Past Commander Dale Heckathorn said. "They fly over our country, but eventually become faded and tattered. They deserve an honorable way of disposal." Participating in the ceremony, from right to left, are Larry Long, Ernie Faris and Dennis Kuneff. Today is Flag Day.
