we just got back from Camp Meriwether. Meriwether does a very moving
closing campfire where they burn a U.S. flag. talking about this afterwards
with a SM from another troop, he stated that not just anyone could conduct
this type of ceremony, that BSA had special permission to do this. I did'nt
say nything, but thought that his information was incorrect. If I remember
the flag code corrrectly, it just says dispose fo the flag in a dignified
manner, nothing about who may ormay not do this.
