MARTINEZ, Calif. – Thirty-five flags were surrendered during the Oct. 11 flag retirement event at the Veteran’s Memorial Building in Martinez. The Diablo Valley Squadron Naval Sea Cadets will dispose of the flags in a respectful manner.

For those that didn’t make it to the event: the Veteran’s Memorial Building, 930 Ward St., Martinez, has a permanent drop-off box in front. Sometimes the VFW or American Legion empties it up to twice a week.

The Daughters of the American Revolution ask that Martinez “keep those good looking flags flying!”
