On August 11, members from Montgomery County Fire & Rescue visited the Troop 447 Rockville camp at the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair, asking if the Troop would be able to retire their #1 flag. SPL Sam accepted the HUGE flag, and commissioned Ivan, Daniel, Owen, Andrew and Nathan to retire the flag at the Saturday campfire at Greenbrier State Park.
The flag was deconstructed, leaving the union intact and the stripes and the union were respectfully placed into the flames.
