Flag Day

Robert Lachowsky and Richard Austerman, both members of the Kodiak American Legion Post 17, spent Flag Day respectfully burning 162 American flags that were no longer serviceable. The Legion collected flags throughout the year to burn on Sunday. June 14 is the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777.
