Flag burning ceremony held in Whitesboro

WHITESBORO, N.Y. (WKTV) - A group of Oneida County Veterans conducted their annual flag disposal ceremony Saturday afternoon in Whitesboro.

Any unserviceable flags were delivered to the Oneida County 40&8 Club on Judd Road over the past several months. The American Flag has been the symbol of our country since 1777 and its burning can be emotional for those who take part in this ceremony.

The 40&8 Club was originally an arm of the American Legion, but became separate in 1960.
