Girl Scouts retire flags at USS Alabama


Baldwin County Girl Scouts celebrated Veterans Day be retiring stacks of old and weathered American flags during an annual ceremony at the USS Alabama.

Girl Scouts from Troops 8306 in Bay Minette and 8017 in Fairhope gathered last week at the battleship for the somber ceremony. The Baldwin County High School JROTC provided color guard duties while members of the Baldwin County High School Band performed Taps once all the flags were properly retired.
