I don't know about the particulars of who is authorized to retire
flags. However, I can tell you that our Troop is chartered by the
American Legion and each year we assist them in a flag retirement. I
know that there are certain rules and regulations that must be
followed in flag retirement. However, I would be surprised if this
event were limited to four organizations. I am sure there is someone
out there who knows more.
