Veteran John Conley of Huntley holds an American flag during a formal Flag Retirement Ceremony at the Huntley American Legion Post 673 on Coral Street Tuesday, June 14, 2016. According to the U.S. Flag Code, the flag “should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning” when it is no longer a fitting emblem for display.
