JWV Bloom Post 256 retires American flags
Members of the Dr. Harvey J. Bloom Post 256 of the Jewish War Veterans of the USA conducted a formal Flag Retirement on the campus of the Dallas JCC on Flag Day (June 14). Following a brief ceremonial reading and the playing of Taps, the team followed U.S. Flag Code to dispose of more than 1,500 flags gathered from individuals, businesses, and local cemeteries that were torn, faded, worn or otherwise unfit to continue being displayed. The JWV Post has offered this service to the Dallas-area community for more than six years.
