(June 14, 2018) Musician 1st Class Chris Hodges, from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, assigned to Navy Band Northwest, plays the trumpet during a flag retirement ceremony at Naval Base Kitsap - Bangor. When a U.S. flag becomes worn, torn, faded, or badly soiled, the flag should be retired with the dignity and respect befitting it. The traditional method is to cut the flag into pieces, separating the 13 stripes from canton and incinerating them separately in a respectful manner.
