Sorry but my photographer missed a lot
of the action. Ceremony closed with playing of Taps. The
Tyler Fire Department collects the flags and folds them, the Civil Air
Patrol unfolds the flags and retires them by burning. Members of
the color guard brough pieces of the flag, red, white and blue strips
and told their meaning. Actually the colors were never
officially given a meaning, only on the Presidential Banner.
