The University of Toledo Student Veterans of America are hosting a flag retirement ceremony Thursday, Nov. 8, at 10 a.m. by the steps of the Thompson Student Union.
Flags in need of retirement can be donated at area Home Depots, Lowe’s, Churchill’s Market in Maumee and Perrysburg, and the Bass Pro Shop in Rossford, Ohio.
“Every part of the ceremony is very meaningful, and we want the Toledo area to see the respect the flag deserves in its retirement,” said Brandon Kalbfliesh, president of the UT Chapter of the Student Veterans of America. “That flag means everything to those of us who serve our country.”
The event also is used to promote the Student Veterans of America and build awareness among the student body.
Any student servicemen or women can get more information on joining the organization at the event.
